#TAKEOVER: 'I have spent a lot of time in Iceland and am very grateful for the fact that I can continue to visit every year. As a photography tour guide, I run several Aurora and Ice Cave photo workshops through @iceland_photo_tours. We visit many diﬀerent ice caves during the winter but this one has to be my favourite. This photo was taken on a snowy morning after climbing into the Katla ice cave.
There was nowhere flat to stand and it was quite diﬃcult to balance but our trusty Icelandic MacGyver carved out a ledge with an ice-pick on the spot for me to stand on! The experience of being dwarfed within one of nature's creations - the silence and the isolation, taking in the textures of your surroundings and running your fingers over the grooves of solid, frozen ice - is just spellbinding. It's a state of tranquility ... a sort of shelter from the harsh elements that could in itself engulf you in a moment of collapse.' @serenavsworld, who's taking over our account this week.

#TAKEOVER: 'Hello everyone! I'm @serenavsworld and I'm absolutely excited to be taking over the @canonaustralia Instagram feed this week. I’ll start by sharing a series of shots from a recent trip to the Dolomites, which was very kindly supported by @adobe. This is a 2-shot panorama that I captured during the very first hint of light at Tre Cime di Lavaredo. Bleary-eyed and windblown, we noticed the pink hues of alpenglow softly swathing the peaks earlier than we'd expected and hastily wound our cold bodies into motion. I’ve not seen very much as magical as this in my life.' Shot Notes:
