Ice by night

ice by night - smoking icicle waterfall

We were on a night hike last night to the nearby cave Sönghellir (The singing cave) which hosts a waterfall and dripping wet moss. But as we had a record in cold temperatures over the past days (up to -13° C) the freezing water connected fully, so the waterfall became one huge icicle. We enlighted the ice with our headlamps.

Two of us are standing behind the frozen waterfall to illuminate it with our headlamps.

You could literally see the ice steaming – really impressive effect

Some fun pictures – playing with light in a cave
mysterious glow over Tindfjallajökull
As we came back we saw the mysterious glow over the glacier Tindfjallajökull again. It is no Northern Light for sure. We assume it is Flúðir – a place 60km northwest where vegetables are cultivated in big greenhouses which might reflect orange light on the night clouds
