‘Fire and Ice’ photo by Ryan Ridge

‘Fire and Ice’ is my name for this magnificent photograph taken in Homer, Alaska. Another magical display… unbelievable beauty and majesty. Thank you beloved Creator… I remain in awe! Beautiful capture Ryan.


Fire and Ice

Cold black grays

with colorless colors

the night fades

to in between.

Bursting light

pierces clouds

and sweeping rays

brush waters bright.

Dark turns light

with fire and ice

and golden dawn

sets sky alight.

Morning comes

with glory bright

Creator’s gift

is our delight.
