A not too common phenomenon of ice hole (tunnel), located on Alaska's Nelchina Glacier. Usually there is sediment and river rock below the glacier so when the melt season comes the water usually seeps through the river bed.. But this hole is on bed rock so the melt has no where to seep through, so it kinda gets back filled then starts a small tunnel until it gets about this big.. or more.. What started out as a small tunnel barely large enough to crawl 7 yrs ago is no over 50 feet high. Nature continues to put us in awe...

The metal medium allows for high definition and an almost 3-D effect. The inks are dye-infused onto a specially coated aluminum in a 400 degree heat press and sealed with a gemlike UV coating that is both waterproof and scratch resistant.
