She was with her photographer Conor McDonnell at the time. In a separate post he wrote:

This photo is from when we were in Norway a few weeks ago – That moment when you’re in -25 in the middle of nowhere in Norway in the pitch black and your belt wagon crashes through the ice in the middle of a lake and you have to emergency evacuate through the roof.

“‘Oh shit we’re in’ was my first though. Second was to take photos. We were in the front cabin. That is pretty much under water in this photo. A few minutes later it was all completely gone under the water and ice for good.”
