Glaciers are shrinking or vanishing like the glacier some in Bolivia. I made an impressive image in 1989 of the ice cave called “Grutas de Zongo”. Today dusty rocks are the only remaining’s, and the ice from the distant past is gone.
I wanted to take new images of ice caves and remembered seeing an article of caves in Iceland. Early in that morning I started checking on the Internet: the location of the caves and when to visit.
The review also included, if available millage would take my wife and I to Breiðamerkurjökull, as well as hotel millage. By end of the day I had air tickets, hotel booking, rental car and a guided tour to the caves.
Nine months later I would be stepping into the airplane and a week later, walking with crampons in the cave. I took my faithful Rollei 6006 film camera as well as a Sony A7R. Made many images with both, until the Rollei due to the extreme cold, had a malfunction, destroying its mechanism forever.
