The blue saturation in The Crystal Cave in Vatnajökull Glacier, Iceland, is dynamic and changes constantly. The intensity is partly dependent on inclement weather followed by exposure to the sun, as well as many other factors. The temperature within the cave is quite mild and the ice itself feels like silk; surprisingly, it is not very cold to the touch. Exploring these caves provides an the experience that is ethereal in the firmament and leads to a wonder of nature that cannot be ignored.

I was exploring the wild and remote caukasus mountain range of Georgia together with a group of pro ski freerider. Here you see the three friends hiking up a lonely mountain at sunset to get a untracked run down to the valley.

Hang Son Doong in Vietnam is the world’s biggest cave, and arguably also the most spectacular. This scene shows one of my travel companions looking into a small rock pool, perhaps for one of the several recently discovered species that are unique to this cave. In the background is one of the cave’s two huge dolines, shrouded in a constantly evolving layer of mist that forms due to the temperature and humidity differential between the cool cave interior and the hot jungle some 200 meters above.

Exploring and photographing caves in Lofoten, Norway. We spent the night here photographing the northern lights and seascapes with beautiful mountains as a fantastic backdrop. When the night turned into morning we had a brief sleep in the cave, next to this one. This night was incredible! This was a real adventure!

Extraordinary colour and light illuminates the incredible Breiðamerkurjökull Ice Cave underneath the Vatnajökull Glacier, Iceland. Covering around 8 percent of the country, Vatnajökull is the largest ice cap by volume in Europe covering around 8300 sq kilometres and is 1000m thick in places. Several volcanos lie underneath the glacier including the recently active Bardabunga and Grimsvotn. Every year new caves develop as old ones disappear as the glacier retreats another 150 metres or so.
