In the artist’s own words: “As soon as we landed in Iceland we headed as far east as we could go. We ignored all the beautiful mountains and waterfalls (since we were going to backtrack anyways). However once we saw the sunset fall behind the glaciers we slammed on the breaks and decided to capture the sun rays glistening through the ice. It’s quite amazing to think that this glacier is hundreds of years old, and that over time the landscape would change for everyone.”
