"Ice Cave Illumination"

We have seen so many amazing photos from the Cornucopia Ice Caves and wanted to do something different. My first visit to the ice caves & arrived to the ice around 4:30a.m. all alone & with no one in site. As a woman I was very nervous venturing out on the ice for the first time on my own at night. The moon was peeking through the clouds and wondered if I would get the photo I was hoping for on Valentine's Day which I will post soon. I walked nearly two miles to this spot with a very heavy back pack carrying the equipment I wanted to use with a back up camera just in case. I used some candles that I used in a different photo to illuminate the small openings in this cave and painted with a LED flash light to help fill in the areas still in the shadows. I also used a light to illuminate the ice pillar in the background. There was active water flowing over the ice formation in the foreground which was amazing to see. This was the result and hope you like it. This is an HDR image.
