Striking sunset colours and nice movement in the water bring the mood to this photograph and the line of the water’s edge leads the eye into the midst. Lovely.

Beautiful ice blocks like the diamonds in the sun sparkle on the black beach Breiðamerkursandur in Iceland and transform it into a glowing field of ice. The whole beach is covered with chunks of ice which brings up a really mysterious atmosphere. I was able to witness this miracle when deep red turned into bright orange while the glowing ice blocks were torn around by the sea. Absolutely gorgeous spectacle worth to see and experience.
