Today I want to show you some photos I took in Iceland a few years ago. Actually I risked my life to take them. We went on a tour to a glacier and our guide was amazed how fast it was melting. According to him this was all covered in ice only a few years before!
Only three months before we were there the ice reached the ground. Now a cave of ice had been formed.
Can you imagine there was an entrance under the glacier we could walk into. Our guide said it was dangerous to go in and it was at our own risk. He would not go in.
Well some of us did. It was exciting but I did not have the feeling the glacier would collapse at that moment. I knew what I was doing but I wanted to experience this. I would never get the chance to take photos from under a glacier again. It was fascinating and thrilling. The further we went the darker it was. At some spots the ice was really thin and we could see some beautiful blue light shining through. It was fantastic realizing there was such a mass of ice above us. And I muss confess I was also happy to leave the glacier safely. I let the pictures speak for themselves.
