Pictured: The spectacular ice cave. <br />
<br />
The spectacular patterns covering the curved roof and walls of this ice cave look like they were made by a kaleidoscope. <br />
<br />
Glacial water causes the brilliant translucent blue colouring in the ice, while the shadowy black sections are frozen volcanic ash.<br />
<br />
This otherworldly ten metre high cave is only temporary - every year new caves are formed and old ones disappear as the glacier they lie beneath retreats.<br />
<br />
Australian photographer Guy Havell travelled half way around the world to photograph these breathtaking ice caves underneath the Breidamerkurjokull glacier in south-eastern Iceland. SEE OUR COPY FOR MORE DETAILS. <br />
