ICELANDIC GLACIERS

 

My first journey to Iceland, in August 2001, began my long-standing passion for the Arctic. Taking an Arctic four-wheel-drive Land Cruiser to the Snaefellsjökull and Langjökull glaciers, my Icelandic guide and I searched for locations where mounds and crevasses of snow created unusual patterns.

I took both a 4×5 and a 35 mm camera loaded with black and white infrared film to capture these hidden mysteries.

The results were magical, glowing snow; deep, dark shadows; and the unusual formations that only infrared light can reveal.
