[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Briksdal glacier is one of the most photographed glaciers in Norway. This is probably because the glacier is easy to reach.
I was cought by the fantastic blue colours of the ice, appearing because of the phenomenon that the ice cristals were breaking the daylight.
It was not really a sunny day, but the light was bright enough to get a photo like this.

Hi Ruud, glaciers are just so interesting. I love the colours and shapes, especially the brilliant blues. Very well captured, thank you,

hi Ruud,
very good glacier picture, I love the ice filling almost all the composition and the blue and white tones. nice reflects in the water.

Hello Ruud,
The glaciers provide awesome colours, well captured by you here!
This is a fine exposure, where you get both colours and textures correctly recorded...
I like the framing, adding some reflections from the melting water!

This is a beautiful shot, I love how you have captured the colours and the softness of the water. However, the details aren't quite sharp enough, so I did a workshop! Otherwise, well done!


This picture is super, it is remember me my trip in Alaska, the reflexion in the water is extra.
