The ice spent a long time in the sea before it ran aground on the beach. Polished by the water, the ice reveals the splendor of its blue. On this day of waves, I spent several hours in the icy water to get these images.

Romain Tornay was born in 1975 in Valais, in the heart of the Swiss mountains. Traveling the peaks from his childhood, he marveled at this alpine nature and his search for aestheticism led him logically to photography about fifteen years ago. This attraction for the great outdoors then leads him to discover the Far North. Thanks to more than thirty trips to the Nordic countries in all seasons, he has built a solid photographic heritage of northern Europe. He now teaches biology and photography at Geneva High School.
