    The gorgeous blue hues and light filtering into this ice cave, as well as the motion of the water falling and moving around the rocks, give this scene a surreal feel. The choice to make this self–portrait a longer exposure makes it harder to execute, but the results add a beautiful dreamy quality. Looking at the image you feel exaltation, peace, and wonder.
