Ice cave exploring

Love these Winter mornings on our photo trips. The ice caves are incredibly beautiful and it can be worth getting down early to the Vatnjokull Ice caves. An ice cave beneath the glacier is one of the best place in the world to photograph glacier ice. Our tours work together with professional local guides to get us into ice caves safely.

Crystal caves

This photo was taken deep in the Crystal caves a few years ago on my 5 day Winter Workshop. Because the edge of the glacier is receding, the cave is completely different each year. The crystal caves still host many visitors each Winter, but they have become too busy with tourists. On our Winter photo workshop we have a special arrangement to visit wen there are no other tours visiting.

Ice cave photography

Ice caves can be difficult to photograph because you have extremes of light. Bright light at the entrance and darkness deeper into the cave make exposure work complicated. Sometimes very long exposures of several minutes is necessary. It is always good to have an experienced photo workshop instructor to help.
