Þjóðvegur, Iceland

Added by Matthew Eaton

Spectacular sunrise location near a major tourism spot in Iceland. The Jökulsárlón Ice Lagoon is a 4.5 hour drive from the capital city of Reykjavík.

One of the more popular sites in Iceland is the Jökulsárlón Ice Lagoon, but an equally amazing site lies right across the highway where icebergs wash ashore after leaving the ice lagoon. These pieces of ice make for a stunning view on the black sand beach and are not to be missed at sunrise!

Watch the Sunrise from Ice Beach Reviews

Winter doesn't always provide easy opportunities to capture sunsets. The beach is super cool regardless. I captured some of the best long exposure photos of waves hitting huge ice chunks.

The view is simply amazing. So surreal to see icebergs on the shore against black sand. I was actually able to sit and lay on the glaciers. Amazing!
