Following a tour group to the Katla Ice Cave in Iceland. Characteristic of the country, everything is a shade of grey with a tinge of blue glacial ice. The cave is collapsing due to climate change, and we don't know how much longer Katla will exist. It seems that companies are still trying to use the space to make as much money as possible before the glacier lets go.
