Collection: Iceland

In the Winter months, when the temperatures are low enough, the air bubbles in ice are compressed to the point that the ice shows as a brilliant blue.  This set of images was taken in a formation from a glacier that was cut into the main body of ice by running water as the glacier melted.  Where little pockets and undulations exist, the water carves out some fantastic shapes and the formations are both visually impressive and temporary as the ice melts further, cresting a constantly changing landscape.

    This colour photograph shows a very thin sheet of ice set against a glacier wall in the background. The bubbles can be seen in the thin sheet as it heats up, they expand.  There is also a hole in it.  The thin piece of ice is in focus and the ice wall in the background is defocussed for a feeling of depth.

  • Ice 3
    This is a view up towards the cloudy sky, from a hole in the glacier. The hole has been carved by water and left a sharp edge pointing into the image, adding drama and depth to it. The ice is a rich, blue colour, against the sky and there are varying thicknesses in the ice. Shot in Iceland by Rupert Marlow fine art documentary photographer in 2015

  • Ice 2
    This hole in the ice was carved by running water and formed a knife shaped stalactite, hanging down above the hole where the water drained away. The thick ice is a darker blue and the stalactite and surrounding thinner ice is much lighter, it looks layered as there are many facets to the hole in the glacier.
