#TAKEOVER: 'I have spent a lot of time in Iceland and am very grateful for the fact that I can continue to visit every year. As a photography tour guide, I run several Aurora and Ice Cave photo workshops through @iceland_photo_tours. We visit many diﬀerent ice caves during the winter but this one has to be my favourite. This photo was taken on a snowy morning after climbing into the Katla ice cave.
There was nowhere flat to stand and it was quite diﬃcult to balance but our trusty Icelandic MacGyver carved out a ledge with an ice-pick on the spot for me to stand on! The experience of being dwarfed within one of nature's creations - the silence and the isolation, taking in the textures of your surroundings and running your fingers over the grooves of solid, frozen ice - is just spellbinding. It's a state of tranquility ... a sort of shelter from the harsh elements that could in itself engulf you in a moment of collapse.' @serenavsworld, who's taking over our account this week.
