14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Exploring the Frozen Underworld

As water erods part of the glacier, caves form underneath. When the water washes away, these beautiful ice-caves are left behind. We were able to explore this cave for quite some time before anyone else showed up. I Loved the way these columns of ice formed inside the cave
