Southeast Iceland
Nikon D800E, Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8, f/11, 4sec, ISO 200

Southeastern Iceland is largely occupied by the Vatnajokull ice field. As this glacial ice flows toward the sea, it is fractured and delivered as icebergs in lagoons before eventually reaching the ocean. Ice in the Jokulsarlon area has been a frequent subject for photographers. One can photograph the ice prior to its arrival in the ocean, but I always thought the most graphically interesting images were of the ice in the surf-line. This type of imagery is fairly well known. However, black and white pictures of this phenomenon are less common.

Photographically, I thought the contrast in this surf-line view enabled a monochrome image that was better than color. You need to be very close to the action but, logistically, it is a very tricky process to photograph in a surf line. Huge waves are mixed in with calmer conditions. It is best to wear clothes or use gear that will allow you to be in the water.

We wish to congratulate this month’s 'Monochromatic Inspirations' winner. This lovely picture can be viewed in High Definition in the latest issue of the magazine
