World's Incredible Glaciers Caves

These are the amazing pictures from the 'Ice Man' - a frosty photographer who is prepared to go to extraordinary lengths to capture the perfect picture. Eric Guth is the real life Jack Frost spending days hiding out in some of the world's most spectacular glacier caves. The 30-year-old regularly camps for days inside the eerie glaciers which can reach unbelievable temperatures: sometimes as low as 20 degrees below freezing.

And even the constant threat of pneumonia, frostbite and collapsing caves isn't enough to put this intrepid photographer off. After becoming fascinated with glaciers as a young boy, Eric has spent the last five years tracking down, living in and photographing the mysterious and unknown caves.

His adventures to find the perfect icy picture have taken him all over the world - from Patagonia in South America to Iceland in the North Atlantic. As these amazing pictures show his trips are well worth it as he captures the stunning beauty of these hidden low temperature landscapes.

Eric, from Portland, USA, said: 'I have been fascinated with ice for as long as I can remember so I can't imagine doing anything else.' 'My mum was a photographer and when she passed her camera down to me, taking pictures of glaciers just seemed like the natural thing to do.' 'I have been known to camp out for anything up to four or five days.'

'Some of the caves are tiny and I can cover the whole thing in an hour or so but some take days to explore and I like to cover every nook and cranny.' 'The long camping trips can be pretty intense and it's definitely a change from the sun I am used to at home but I love it.'

'I've made it my mission to track down the most spectacular glaciers in the world and while I have seen dozens already the sight always takes my breath away'
