Earth's Diamonds

Earth's Diamonds.
An early morning sunrise at the Glacier lagoon.
The night before we had a lot of big chunks of ice on the beach. In the morning they were almost all gone. The beach was scattered with all kinds of smaller ice chunks. It was a challenge to find a good composition in between the waves.
The waves came fast and were very unpredictable. A lot of people get very wet on this beach because of the very unpredictable sea.
For this shot I left my camera in place while running backwards because of a very strong wave. It might be a bit risky, I mean the camera could be lost, but it was the only way to capture this image because the chunks were almost continuously in the water.
