    this is a self portrait of my self under a glacier in Alaska. this was by far the most amazing experience. this cave took me two + hour hike over a mountain side through swamps and about 30 minutes of walking on the glacier its self.this cave under the glacier is formed from a waterfall off the mountain that meets the glaciers edge and the cave is around 30 yards deep.When i first walked under the Glacier it was the most breath taking and scary experience I have lived.

    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.
