Moonrise at Diamond Beach
Ice at the edge of the surf on Jokulsarlon "diamond beach" at dawn as the moon rises. Huge chucks of ice from the glacier in the nearby lagoon constantly break off and get pulled out to sea at low tide. The waves then wash the ice up onto the beach. The water rushed in between the beached pieces of ice.
