Fire & Ice: A Walk Inside an Ice Cave Next to the Mutnovsky Volcano in Northern Russia

Fire & Ice: A Walk Inside an Ice Cave Next to the Mutnovsky Volcano in Northern Russia Russia landscapes ice glaciers

This amazing shot was captured last year by photographer Denis Budkov in an ice cave near the Mutnovsky volcano in an area of northern Russia. Known for an abundance of precipitation the area is often covered in several meters of snow and ice that cover mountain streams like this creating vast caves that look like something out of a science fiction movie. This particular cave was nearly 300m (980 ft.) long and several photographers in Budkov’s group also snapped a few amazing shots. The photographer also captured this jaw-dropping photo of some tourists in front of a volcanic explosion earlier this year. The power of depth of field, right? (via Russia Travel Blog)
