N-ice light show: stunning ice caves creates incredible Northern Lights like shapes as light hits glacier
These stunning pictures show the incredible Northern Lights-like illusions created by light hitting glaciers.
Looking like images from a distant planet, the Icelandic ice caves appear to be putting on their very own light show.
Shot in the Vatnajökull National Park, light that seeps in from the end of the tunnel shines through the ice creating wave like illusions giving it the nickname ‘the Northern Lights Ice Cave’.
In one picture, a column of solid ice shoots up from the ground to the ceiling with a celestial blue beam shooting off at all angles.
The amazing photographs were shot by Dutch photographer, Robert Meerding.
Robert, 44, said: “The whole experience was magical.
“The way the light seeps through the ice is incredible.
“It creates such amazing shapes that you forget you’re surrounded by a glacier.”
The hike took the group four hours to complete and was specifically designed for photographers.
The caves are only accessible during winter and because they’re so low, visitors have to crouch through.
Richard said: “The circumstances were not easy for me as I have back problems and the ceiling was very low.
“I had to crawl all the time and my back acted up.
“The cave is at the end of a glacier with a 100m tunnel with a low ceiling to get to the a chamber like area that is also the other end of the cave.”
