New Diamonds Splash to the Beach

This is from my sunrise shoot at Diamond Beach near the Glacier Lagoon in Southern Iceland. Several new "Diamonds" were being swept onto the shore. I tried to capture the action of the waves as well as the ice. You can see the black sand beach, the water retreating, the bergs coming in, and new waves breaking. It gives a glimpse of all of the "action" in this magnificent place.
