Fire and Ice by kkart Fire and Ice by kkart
Fire and Ice


The skies of Winter put on a display like Heaven battling Hell in Colorado's Rocky Mountain National Park. HDR blend of 4 shots, I hope you all like it!

Absolutely stunning! What a rare, beautiful moment... So glad you were there to capture it!

Just curious, what part of the Park were you in when you took this picture? Been there plenty of times, but this doesn't look all that familiar...

Absolutely Beautiful shot. The title is fitting and makes me think of the poem "Fire and Ice" by Robert Frost, and the beauty between the elements that I see when I read the poem is beautifully portrayed here.

Thank you. Frost is probably one of my favorite poets. My best friend got me into him, and I've grown to really enjoy his work. Fire and ice is my favorite though.

Oh wow, I love it!

Haha now I know I missed out on shooting a good sunset, I was debating going into the park that day but decided not to spend the money since I lost my 1 year pass (I was in Estes for a ghost hunt that day).

Bah, I can never get enough of RMNP :)

Lol yup!
There was a hunt in the concert hall that night. Didn't catch anything too shocking. Just some footsteps, loud sighs, and words on a ghost box. But it was a blast :)

SOME say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what Iíve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Fire and Ice
Robert Frost
