THESE BRAVE women strip down to just their bikinis to practice yoga on ICE.
The stunning shots show one female balancing on her head whilst floating on a drifting iceberg in freezing conditions. Another image shows two women balancing inside a glacier whilst another skilfully positions herself on a rock and stretches towards a gap in the ice cave’s ceiling.
Other cool pictures show the women relaxing in hammocks that have been pitched onto the walls inside the melting ice caves.
The collection of photos was taken by insurance industry worker and amateur photographer, David Canales (31) from Kingsville, Texas. David took the shots at Prince William Sound, Alaska using his Canon 5D Mark 3 camera.
“I’m very passionate about the outdoors and I don’t want to enjoy the adventure of the outdoors by myself, I want to enjoy it with friends,” said David.
“I’ve become a catalyst at getting my friends outside by planning camping trips with them and in exchange for planning trips, I get to take photos of them.
“Many of my photos are taken in very remote places only few have seen in Alaska.
“When you take photos in remote places I feel like a participant.
“I’ll take more advantage of the environment, such as putting ice screws in a glacier or iceberg and setting up a hammock.”
Prince William Sound, Alaska has 3,800 miles of coastline which encompasses beautiful fjords and islands. The area also has 150-glaciers which are notorious for dropping large chunks of ice into the surrounding waters.
“This type of photography gives me something to look forward to,” added David.
“I want to tell people to find their wilderness, whether it’s the most remote places in the world, or a park in your town just down the street.
“Finding your wilderness brings peace and clarity in this crazy word we live in.”
