Dislodged Ice Chunk on Diamond Beach, Iceland

I was wandering south along the river from the famed Jokulsarlon Lagoon in South Iceland. Ice chunks dislodge from the Vatnajokull Glacier and make their way to the Atlantic Ocean. I found this ice chunk washed up on diamond beach glistening in the sun and was entranced by its contours, texture, and form.
