Snezna jama (Snow Cave)
The first hall in Snezna jama (Snow Cave). We are standing on a more than 15 meters deep layer of ice - an ex frozen lake. These pillars are of about the same height! August 19th, 2006.

Yes, indeed. These ice columns are more or less permanent, but they say that there are also times when they melt. I don't know why, but the average temperature in this hall is lowering in recent years.
Thanks for visiting!
Cheers!

Thanks, Paolo. I thought this ice is the only attraction of this cave, but was surprised with its stalaktites and stalagmites too.

There are many ice caves in the northern Austria, in Tennengebirge and Dachstein. I guess there must be just appropriate temperature in order that water can flow and later freeze. Klaus (Wuedesau) is professor for this :-)

I love the ice columns. If you like it, in the page of Peña Blanca you had interesting images of the Ice Cave of Lecherines as well: Peña Blanca's Gallery.

I am surprised to see this color, perhaps a component of the ice is a dissolved mineral like calcium, in the water. Very impressive picture, glad I stumbled upon your gallery. How do you say it? pecina? Does that mean cave in Slovenian? My grandfather was from near Bled. Pleased to meet you, I will look at more of your pictures now.

Hi, Joel!

Well, the colour of ice may be also a bit distorted, because the picture was taken in artificial light (I don't remember, probably also with a flash). But some minerals certainly are dissolved in the ice, even if this feature is quite close to the surface, so not deep underground.

It's interesting to know that your descendants are from near Bled! Then may be once you have a chance to come over the pond;)

'Pecina' is more Serbian or Croatian. In Slovenian 'pecina' means a 'crag'. A 'cave' would be 'jama'.

Thank you for all kind words and wisits of my pages!
Cheers!
