Wallpaper Thursday

Storvatnet ice

Storvatnet Lake, Lofoten Islands, Norway.

Photographer Stian Klo took some chances getting this photograph:

I was desperately searching a good sunrise spot this particular morning. Normally Storvatnet Lake is completely covered in snow, so you can only imagine my surprise when I saw these crazy ice formations almost being shot out of the frozen lake. I put my crampons on and took a big risk walking out. I could hear the ice cracking underneath my feet, and when you’re all alone in a fjord/canyon like this – the cracks are echoed and sound really frightening. Was it worth it? I sure think so!

    This wallpaper looks amazing. The ice creations are also looking liking a sea creature. The image is mind blowing and looks like taken out of some fantasy.

    Looks like a scene from “Frozen.” I am expecting a troupe of singing men with large saws to be along shortly. 😉
