Ever wanted to climb an iceberg — these are the scenes that kept me awake at night when during the day we were out there working to make them a reality. Would the ice be thick enough to walk on? Would the icebergs be safe enough? Could I travel on my injured ankle? •

After the accident on the glacier, while shooting in Iceland, we didn’t want to drive the 5 hours back to Reykjavík to have my ankle checked out and miss the good weather. It was cold and sunny, perfect conditions. So instead the team went to explore a Lagoon we knew of that was a mix of open water and thinly frozen ice (because of the cold). Icebergs that had calved off the glacier lay floating and frozen in the lagoon.
Sitting in a sled, and using ski poles for power, pushing my way across the thin ice as @bookofsamuel and the rest of the team climbed without ropes, exploring this massive pieces of ice that are gone in a few weeks time.
Special thanks to @retro_outdoors for the Viking carry when things got rough!
