Taking photos in ice caves can be a roller-coaster of a photography adventure. You never know what the cave is going to look like because they change every year after the Summer melting. Generally I go prepared with a wide angle lens because the ice structures over head are massive. You need a wide angle to capture any decent part of it because you are so close to the structure. This is an abstract picture from the roof of an Ice cave. This was taken with my Zeiss 50mm prime lens. This is an odd choice in a huge ice cave, but here I wanted to take an abstract piece of the glacier ice. I was as close as my lens could focus (it’s not macro lens).
Vatnjökull Ice Cap
This Ice Cave was under Breiðurmörkurjökull – part of Vatnjökull glacier in South East Iceland. Breiðurmörkurjökull is the glacier that feeds Jökulsarlon with those big floating ice bergs.
We caught the tail end of the overnight storm. The wind & sand created incredible scalloped textures in the fresh glacier ice.
Time to say good bye to Stokksness for another month. Vestrahorn mountain always delvers some beautiful scenes and not to mention the interesting weather.
We were making our way down to the glacier tongue at Svinfallsjökull when I spot the colour in the clouds above Kristinatindur.
