Focal Length:600mm
Shutter:1/200 sec
Camera:Canon EOS-1D Mark IV

Sometimes it’s near impossible to capture the sheer size of things. Bråsvellbreen is such a thing. It is part of the third-largest icecap in the world, Austfonna on Nordaustlandet (I guess you can come up with the larger two) and it has a continuous glacier front of 200km long. However, how do you take a picture of something that is 200km wide and “only” 30m high? Well, you don’t. So I decided to take a more close up approach and take some details from the front with waterfalls coming down as that is the other thing that makes Bråsvellbreen a really spectacular sight.
