A photographer has taken some surprisingly clear shots using a camera lens he made out of 10,000 year old ice.

Mathieu Stern travelled to Iceland where he hoped to find the clearest possible ice.

He then moulded chunks of ice into lenses for his camera using a homemade 3D tool.

While the lenses only lasted about a minute each, he was able to take a series of surprisingly clear photos and videos.

The photographer feels he found the pictures “perfect”, even though they were a little blurr – his two years dream has finally come true.
