This guy is showing really amazing stuff! Do not miss this if you are an ice lover! Some of the footage was taken at the galaciers in "my" area, including the Jökulsarlon glacial lagoon, that is where I shot my ice images published in the book "Ice Visions".

Ice Visions/Íssýnir/Eisvisionen/Visions de glace (Arts & Photography)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: Ice - is it a display of divine power, a challenge to heroes or a chilly reflection of our own ego? Does yet another glaciation threaten the earth, or will current glaciers disappear, along with today's civilisation? Throughout history, people have watched this cold companion warily, trying to fit it into their view of the world. This book relates the fascinating appearance and characteristics of ice to its intellectual and spiritual aspects. While the printed excerpts show human experiences of ice during the past 2000 years, the unusual photographs give a visual impression of the varied and colourful forms that ice can take.

This book is real fun to read. It contains less "facts" about ice compared to Mariana Gosnell's book but it has a really nice spirit of appreciation of the subject. It is less "complete", but more anecdotal wich makes it so pleasant to read. Definite ...more
