Located near Jökulsárlón glacier in Iceland, Eystri-Fellsfjara, or Diamond Beach is a volcanic black sand beach that is sprinkled with diamond-like iceberg crumbles. When I visited this magnificent place, the wind and cold chilled me to the core. While the temperature seemed frigid to me, the evidence of global warming was apparent in the drastically melting nearby glacier field. Diamond Beach is a dichotomy of heartbreaking and breathtaking as fragments of icebergs littered the beach and glittered in the nearly 22 hours of sunlight. This painting was created by palette knife and without the use of paint brushes.
