Looks nice! Beautiful photographs. It makes me want to visit Alaska. 🙂
Come on up, Daniel. You would have a great time in Alaska (Juneau) as long as you make sure great weather would be a surprise and not something you’re counting on!

Your photos of the Mendenhall glacier ice caves are amazing!! I was just there in late June – early July 2013 and took a few shots with my new Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L EF II USM lens. I am an amateur photographer who decided to invest in my hobby. What kind of camera and lens were you using for these amazing photos?
Gina – Thanks for taking the time to comment on my photographs. It’s a blessing to be able to share what I’ve seen with people who have a strong desire to appreciate the beauty of the world. If you’ve been reading a lot as you practice photography, it may not surprise you to know that the gear I use is in some ways inferior to your own. For the last five years or so, I’ve been using the Canon 5DMKII. I like to use a wide perspective in confined spaces, but recently I’ve been using a TS-E 24L (with shifting to stitch multiple images) in place of my older 17-40L. Some of the earliest photos that remain a part of my current portfolio were made with a Nikon D2x and the kit lens that came with my old D70.

Hi, I’m planning to go to iceland and photograph ice caves as well. I’m a total novice and have a canon rebel sl-1 (a compact SLR similar to the T5i) and 2 lenses: Sigma 18-250mm f3.5-6.3 and a 40mm f2.8 canon. Is there any general advice you can give me about taking pictures in ice caves that look as good as great as yours?
Jordan – The simplest advice I can give for photographing ice caves is bring and use a tripod. Secondly, I would highly recommend recording images as RAW files because chances are VERY good that your camera will not choose the best white-balance. The best photographs, whether of ice caves or anything else, come from photographers who have something important to say about their subject, who have seen something special. With that in mind, be sure to fully engage the ice caves you visit before you think about making any photographs. See with your own eyes and mind, use the rest of your senses, before you begin worrying about how the camera is going to see. Have a great trip!
Amazing photos!!! If I’m coming to Juneau this December 26 – 1st Jan, would it be hard to get to these caves ? Or bad timing and what time to you recommend going for these caves?
The ease of getting to the ice cave on the west edge of the Mendenhall Glacier in the winter is heavily dependent on whether the surface of the Mendenhall Lake is frozen solid. If it is, then the biggest difficulty is that there is only enough light to see and photograph in the cave for a short window each day, and the light is best on clear sunny days. If I had to pick a best time of year for ice cave photography, I would suggest early summer. On the other hand, a winter visit gives the added bonus of the chance at seeing the Aurora Borealis.
Thanks so much for the reply 🙂

Amazing photos! You have a great talent to capture the beauty that God has given to Alaska.
I will be visiting Juneau June 7 – 8 and would love to explore the caves. Did you go through a tour group? Any info you have would be much appreciated! Thank you and God bless!
Francesca – I would suggest you get in touch with Above and Beyond AK, ABAK, about joining a group tour or having your own private glacier tour. http://beyondak.com/
