Some times nature is stranger than fiction. These photographs certainly slot into that category. Taken at Kamchatka Ice Caves, on the Russian peninsula of Kamchatka, they record strange and beautiful natural monuments.

The subject caves are created be a mixture of vulcanism and deep freeze, carved out by waters from a nearby hot spring. In recent years, the local glaciers which form their roofs have melted to the point of letting light seep down through the ice, creating strange displays of colour and light.
