Update: If some who are viewing this image (that is getting an unexpected boost in exposure) don't have time to check out the information that accompanies some of my earlier images, I wanted to answer some questions. This is the Mendenhall Glacier near Juneau, Alaska. Caves under the glacier come and go over years, and they're constantly changing as the ice melts.

The view "upstream" inside the cave is always mesmerizing. While changes in the shape of the stream and a different perspective provide a different foreground to this photograph than any in my previous work, I don't know if it's dissimilar enough in the whole.

I tried a few compositions today that I think will be worth sharing, and it was wonderful just to get back into the cave under spring/summer conditions.

+Kent Mearig thank you very much , it's so wonderfull, sometime i want to visit this place if i can :D
 
+ammu vasudevan - Anyone who wants to visit Juneau for a day can see this cave (with a little work), it is visited by thousands of tourists each summer and is accessible by paths that cause very little disruption to the native plants and animals.

I would definitely work very hard to get there someday and experience this amazing wonder with my own eyes. :) Thank you so much for sharing this with all of us. I'm start brushing up on my photography skills as well. :P
 
Its really wonderful...almost looks animated rather than being the real thing,,,didn't you get cold? lol
 
Sets me at peace just looking at it
 
+Barbara Teasley - I did put gloves on after a while on this visit. In the dead of winter, it's actually much warmer deep in this cave than it is outside, but this image was made today.

Its fucking ugly as piss, now get the fuck out of my news feed you attention/spamming whore!
 
Really a beauty !!! It is a cave but it feels like beeing watching the sea from underneath it. Spectacular !
 
That is so amazing and most likely the 8th wonder or the world
 
it looks peaceful and beautiful
 
i dont no what is this but its so butifull
 
thats so pretty i wish i was there
 
supposed i have to live there..i'd rather die..it's suffocating view
 
+heather schoeman - The sound of running water in the cave is very loud this time of year. I was commenting to a friend on the hike back to my car yesterday that it is not nearly as peaceful as it comes across in the photo.
 
thankyou all guy that you give me a chance...
 
My jaw dropped to the floor...
Unbelievable...
 
The picture is magnificent. By that I mean that it is, IMO, technically very nicely done and (more importantly) it does justice to the subject matter. 

Just out of curiosity, is this as dangerous as it appears from the description?
 
Not dangerous really, +Steve Kalman, but the ceiling is very sharp at the points you can see in the images. I've cut my head a few times. There is almost zero risk that any part of the ice would fall from the ceiling.
 
One of the most incredible images I've ever seen. Honestly, the very definition of stunning.
 
All of your pictures are truly works of art :-) Are you a professional photographer or, is it just a hobby? I think you have what it takes to.be a prof photographer.and I'm sure everyone here would agree with me :O Please keep your pics coming and I hope.u don't mind if I share.some of your work on Facebook - this way you can gain more followers.than u have now!! I truly believe you are an extremely talented photographer and your shots should be out there for everyone to see...you are truly blessed :-D 
 
+Maureen Fairhurst - I wouldn't call photography just a hobby, but I'm actually a professional teacher. You're right that I'm blessed. I'm blessed to live in the place that I do and blessed with a great appreciation for its beauty. I'm glad you like the images shared here on G+.
