If this isn't one of the most incredible places to photograph, we don't know what is!

Photographers from all over the world flock to Jkulsrln Beach in southeastern Iceland to capture the beautiful icebergs that wash ashore.

Floated into the sea from a nearby glacial lagoon, the turquoise-colored icebergs are a stunning contrast against the black sand beach.

While the ocean has melted some of the icebergs away, many of the ones that wash ashore have been beautifully sculptured by the wind and water, appearing like sparkling jewels in a vast desert.

Said Icelandic photographer Örvar Atli Porgeirsson, "The beach below the popular and beautiful Jkulsrln glacier lagoon is strewn with small icebergs that float from the lagoon down the short Jkuls Breiarmerkursandi River."

"The contrast between the pitch black lava sand and the bright and blueish icebergs is very photogenic and fun to play with."
