Once the chunks of ice produced by the calving of Breiðamerkurjökull are small enough to float towards the sea, the surf washes them up on the beach.

They decay slowly on the black sand, producing unique shapes that only last for a couple of minutes.

Antibes Harbour

Antibes Harbour

Yachts moored in the harbour of Antibes (de) at the Côte d’Azur (de) in winter. The port was the old center of the greek city of Antipolis and has room for over 2000 boats, yachts and even ships with a length of more then 100m and the height of a 5 story building.
According to locals the waiting-time for a mooring is over 10 years and people are reluctant to let go, even when that means living on their boat instead of a flat.

Even in late December temperatures reach 15+ degrees Celsius. The wind might be cold sometimes, but the sun has enough power that people can take a dip in the Mediterranean Sea (photographers note: not advisable when you already have a light cold…).

Azure Storm

Azure Storm

Autumnal beachfront at Nice (Côte d’Azur). The sea retains its azure magic even during the sometimes stormy weather.

The beach is covered with large pebbles, but an artificial stretch of sand gets arranged for tourists to play beach volleyball etc. The playing field is visible on most beachfront-pictures, which are usually taken from Mt. Boron.

Small icebergs have broken of the glacier tongue Breiðamerkurjökull, extending from the south end of Vatnajökull. Slowly melting the ice floats in Jökulsárlón towards the sea.

Tourists can enjoy a boat ride across the lagoon in old amphibious vehicles. To move icebergs out of the way a dinghy accompanies the tourists, pushing clear a waterway.
