Glacier River

Getting to this exact spot without slipping was something only a penguin could do.

Imagine hard packed ice that is somewhere between the density of diamond and a collapsed star that is covered with a fine mist at 32.01 degrees. And then imagine walking on that in tuxedo shoes. Also, you are carrying an eight pound camera with a tripod that has roughly the same dimensions and weight as a flagpole.

But, all in all, this turned out very nice, with the ice-green glacier in the background.

    Wow, amazing…
    I’ve never thought about going to iceland, but now I might have to reconsider…

  • Totally awesome. It’s a good thing you’re equipment didn’t froze while taking the shot 🙂

    Did you get a shot of that penguin Trey? A penguin in Iceland really would be an incredible shot, especially one that was carrying a camera & tripod!
    Did you have to set up the camera alone, or did the penguin help?

    Just to be pedantic, water can exist in liquid form at 32 degrees F. Look up heat of fusion.

    I wish I could travel like you do.
