This image is from the Diamond Beach Iceberg series. It was taken on Breiðamerkursandur Beach, commonly known as Diamond Beach on the south coast of Iceland. This black sand beach is near the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. Icebergs break off of Breiðamerkurjökull the glacial tongue of Vatnajökull (the largest icecap in Europe), float and start to melt in the lagoon, then travel through a short waterway into the Atlantic Ocean. Some of the icebergs wash up on the beach and the glitter like diamonds, hence the nickname Diamond Beach. The icebergs vary size and color; most are white and some are blue with black streaks of ash indicating past volcanic eruptions. The scene of icebergs on the beach is dazzling and I started taking close-up images of the icebergs that reveal intricate and beautiful patterns of ice, sand, and air pockets. Each image is one of a kind and that's what I love about capturing images of nature that are fleeting.

I am happiest when I am traveling, exploring new places, meeting people, and creating memories. Photography is an essential part of the experience – ask anyone who knows me. As a nature and abstract photographer, I am constantly inspired by the world around me. Whether it's the intricate patterns of a leaf, the movement of water, or the ethereal quality of a sunset, I strive to capture the beauty and wonder of the natural world in my work. My photographs are meant to transport viewers to a different place, inviting them to see the world in a new light. I am always seeking out new and creative ways to interpret the world through my lens, and I hope that my work will inspire others to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us every day. My technique and joy is to capture the stark and finite beauty of the departing moment, when the ordinary becomes the extraordinary, when the real appears unreal.More About Artist
