The tremendous scale of this glacier cave is lost without a reference point. Situated just above the scenic and secluded Wedgemount Lake, it's a testament to the yearly retreat of the Wedgemount Glacier. The pace of the melting is remarkable, as even a few days in the summer can bring significant changes. The cave towers above you at 5 storeys high, making you feel small and insignificant in its magnificent presence. Accessible only via a rugged and extremely steep hike, only a few thousand people get to see it every year.

Location: Wedgemount Glacier 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 CS6 from 3 RAW exposures.

This glacier cave is officially my favorite spot around here. Same place as below, but 10 days later -

This is one of the most amazing and beautiful sceneries I have ever seen in my life. This picture truly captures the essence and beauty of one of the many amazing things and places of this world; this gives up the sense of tranquility and serenity, though I have to point out that I am not quite sure what the red pebble like objects are [though I am guessing they are scarlet colored rocks]. Another thing I would like to point out is the quality of the picture taken itself, it is incredibly of HQ and it is as if I were in this place watching every little detail. Also, the title itself is also matching to this picture, as we see multiple things having turbulence in the midst of this amazing picture, such as the water, ice and the earth. Keep up your amazing works and I hope to be able to continue to do critics on your works as much as I can.

I am amazed at the incredible landscapes that you are able to locate and capture, truly wonderful.  As an ameture photographer hoping to make real money off of photographs when I am done with high school I was wondering if you have any pointers.
I love your work

It looks so other-worldly, something straight from a sci-fi movie. Another great capture.
