Marvel - Landscape Calendar #1 by IvanAndreevich Marvel - Landscape Calendar #1 by IvanAndreevich
This shot is a part of the 2013 landscape calendar, which is now available! Go check it out :D

It is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. There is nothing to understand the tremendous scale of this cave, but consider the fact that I was able to stand in the little crack between the two lighter pieces of ice seen in the upper middle of the photo. The cave itself is 4-5 floors high, and probably 30-40 meters deep. The ice is indeed blue. Rarely do you ever get a chance to get close to something like this, and it's completely overwhelming.

I can go on and on about the crazy weird types of ice and snow around there. The snow is embedded with the finest silt, and isn't slippery. The red parts are partially due to watermelon snow (an algae). There are solid blocks of ice embedded with rocks like chocolate chip cookies. There is extremely fine silt, which is like quicksand if you step in it. There are icebergs floating in the melt pool just to the right of the visible area. The concentration of amazing stuff per unit area is off the charts.

Location: Wedgemount Glacier just above Wedgemount Lake, Garibaldi Provincial Park, Beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
Equipment: Nikon D90 + Tokina 11-16mm + Tiffen Polarizer.
Processing: Photomatix Pro 4.1 and Photoshop CS5 from 3 RAW exposures.

It's the glacier you see in the distance here, from under which this creek flows out -
