Jökulsárlón in Iceland is a breathtaking place. On one side of the road is a beautiful blue, glacial lagoon. On the other side is a black sand beach where giant icebergs lie scattered along the shore. This beauty come with its own peril – I found out the hard way. Right after I took this shot, a rogue wave knocked my off my feet and pushed me underwater. I managed to hold on to my Canon 5D MKII and tripod, but both the camera and lens were destroyed. Thank goodness for my backup camera! And the memory card was not damaged… so I didn’t lose any photographs. Thank goodness!
