Icebergs washed up on the black sand beach of the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon in Iceland

The icebergs lay like stranded whales on the raven-black lava sand that lines the south coast of Iceland. Powerful waves wash around them and drag them further ashore, after they drifted aimlessly in the sheltered lagoon for months. The colors tell stories about age and density, and they speak of the history of the volcanoes that let black ash rain down and darkened the skies.
