Orphans on the Beach   Jokulsaron Beach, South Iceland

Every day the tide enters and leaves the Jokulsaron Lagoon via a quarter mile inlet, sweeping icebergs into the North Atlantic where they are battered into pieces, eroded and then deposited by the tide on the black sand beaches. When I arrived at 5:00 this morning following a powerful storm, I was stunned: thousands of icebergs had been orphaned as far as the eye could see on the beach by the prior nights ferocious tide.
