In the artist’s own words: “Glacial ice cave beneath 60 feet of ice in southern Iceland. In the winter you can access caves which change every year with the melting and refreezing of the seasons. I hiked on the glacier with my wife and friends to this “waterfall cave” in February. It was everything I hoped for as the natural light brings out spectacular blues in the ice and gives the cave life.”
