Yesterday, Iceland Review Online published a story about the rapid retreat of Iceland's glaciers. According to the glaciologist Oddur Sigurðsson at the Icelandic Met Office, glaciers in Iceland retreated again in 2012, the 17th year in a row.
The above image was taken at 11:46:11 on January 8 at N64°01’27.4” and W16°52’53.4” looking E144° at 112 meters (367 feet) above sea level, with a Canon 1D X, 24mm 1.4L II at 2” and 6.7, ISO 100.
Local guide Einar Rúnar Sigurðsson (pictured) told Iceland Review that the glacier (see above coordinates for location) had retreated more than 100 meters in the last two years, creating many glacier caves like this one.
More images from the glacier will be featured in a photo essay in the next issue of Iceland Review magazine, out April 1.
