The Qaulities of Ice by tourofnature
The Qaulities of Ice

Glacial ice is not like other ice. Glacial ice in the right light and with the right imagination can take on a life of it's own. Seeing the variety of very old ice on our recent trip to Iceland completely changed my perspective on what frozen water can represent. This photo was taken in very unique place in the world, a volcanic black sand beach where large pieces of recently calved glacial ice float through a substantial 1/4 mile stretch of river before being ejected into the frigid waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The powerful force of the ocean then pushes the ice back onto the beach where it is battered by the waves and subject to the whims of the rising and falling tide. It's an otherworldly scene and I was photographing it during a steady but light right.

The ice has this reflecting, glowing blue quality due to the immense weight of the glacier and an immense amount of time. This ice began it's journey to the ocean somewhere around 1000 years ago as a wet snowfall near the top of Iceland's Vantnajokull glacier. A force of nature in itself, the glacier is the largest outside of the poles and it makes up a staggering 8% of Iceland's substantial landmass. Glacial Ice has this blue hue by having all of the air pockets compressed after the unimaginable weight of the ice above presses down on it's long journey to being calved and sent to sea here. A cool element to this particular scene was a seal bobbing in and out of the crashing surf among the beached icebergs. A truly unique and humbling scene presented in Iceland!

As you may have noticed I enjoy the outdoors. My camera gives me a hell of an excuse to escape the city to wide open spaces. I recently opened up my business front at [ ] and so far we've had steady growth.

I'm here to learn and share my work so feel free to comment and critique if you've got something to say. Thank you in advance for the support and feedback.
