Powerful ocean currents sweep Iceland's southern coast, tossing these enormous icebergs like dice. The ice, which formed in Europe's largest ice cap over a thousand years ago, calves into striking bergs at the shore of Jokulsarlon Ice Lagoon. After floating through an outlet to the sea, the icebergs slowly melt in the pounding surf, returning their moisture to the water cycle. In this photograph, the low, flat light of the overcast sky reveals gradations of blues contrasted with the ocean's grayer tones.
