Abstract Aerial Photos of Melting Glaciers in Iceland
“Glacier Pools” is a photo series by German photographer Tom Hegen, who flew over melting glaciers in Iceland in a helicopter and captured abstract aerial views of the pools that form in the outwash plains.
“These Glacier Pools occur when a chunk of ice breaks off of a retreating glacier and embeds itself in the ground,” Hegen writes. “When it melts, it forms what is called a kettle pond.”
“In freshly deglaciated areas, such as around the melting glaciers in Iceland, there are dozens of small pools in the outwash plains,” Hegen says. “The lake colors indicate amounts of sediment or depth: the Deeper or clearer the water, the bluer the lake.”
You can find more of Hegen’s work on his website and Instagram.

Photographing the Epic Beauty of New Zealand's South Island
New Zealand’s South Island is known for its picturesque landscapes, breathtaking high peak alps, and ever-changing weather. It is a world heritage for its untouched wilderness, clear night skies, and adventure tourism. After traveling through the North Island, it was time for me to jump south.
These images are highlights of a two month’s journey through the South Island of New Zealand. I traveled from the north region all the way to the austral region at Stirling Point, the closest coast to the South Pole.
Living in my van, I was able to drive coast to coast without haste, absorbing New Zealand’s incantation one scene at a time. From incredible saturated colored sunsets, misty mountain regions, crystal clear mirror lakes and rocky coasts, to rugged glacial valleys, lush forests with never-ending waterfalls, towering alpine peaks, the so-called “Spiritual Center of the World” and the amazing spectacle of the Aurora Australis.
The south island feels like a never-ending rollercoaster of masterpieces waiting to be captured by our camera lenses.
All the images were taken with a Fujifilm XT-2, Fujinon 18mm, 35mm, 50-230mm, and a Rokinon 12mm lenses. They were edited and processed on Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop.
