The biggest glacier in Iceland or Superman's Fortress of Solitude

Hello and welcome to the real life Fortress of Solitude. This unbelievably beautiful cavern is inside Vatnajökull, Iceland's biggest glacier, captured by photographer Kate Friend, who took a stunning series of shots inside this 8,000-square-kilometer ice mass.

Can you believe this pic wasn't color-corrected in Photoshop? The blues are so crisp and so clear, I can only imagine what they looked like in person. Unfortunately, Vatnajökull is melting at a meter-per-year, so images like these are not only incredible, they're also preserving the place in a way that be quite different next time she visits.
