Night exploration of the ice cave. Tourists come to check this glacier and icecave in the daytime, which means nobody is around at night.  This time i was also lucky and northern lights were turned on. Unluckily the wind was strong and it blew snow all around from the glacier…also on the camera and lens (which can be seen on the top part of the picture..3 circles). White balance was set on cloudy, so blue came out. There was some tweaking of the exposure, shadows and clarity, but mainly this is it. Looks like a fairy-tail. Thank you Tomas, for pressing the button on the camera :) .
