Under A Glacier

Inside an Ice Cave in Iceland

Have you ever been under a glacier?  I have and it is scary and cool at the same time.  One of the best places to explore ice cave is in Iceland in the winter.  Ice caves are the space between a bottom of the glacier and the earth the glacier is moving on.  In the summer time there is usually a massive amount of water running through these caves from melt off but in the winter everything is frozen and as a result, you can explore these caves (carefully of course).  The best way to see these ice caves is with a guide who knows the caves and where it is safe and not safe.  This image was made in a cave where you had to crawl in many places.  I loved this giant ice pillar.  This image was shot with a Phase One camera and the exposure was several minutes.  It is very dark in these caves and only a small amount of light filters through the glacier itself.  I highly recommend this experience but only if you are not claustrophobic.
