Picture taken in June 2018 of floating ice in the glacial lake of Fjallsárlón in Iceland.
This glacier lake is located at the south end of the Icelandic glacier Vatnajökull. The glacier calving into the lagoon is a small part of the bigger glacier and called Fjallsjökull. It reaches down to the water of the lake and some ice-bergs are drifting by on its surface. The better known glacier lake Jökulsárlón is a few kilometers from there.
