Between work, the weather, and winter projects I haven't spent much time behind the camera lately. Finding time to head out with the camera this afternoon I checked out the ice situation on the local creek. Recent rains have raised the water level a little more than what it was when the ice originally formed loosening the edges. Although unsafe to walk out on the re-freezing of the exposed edge has created beautiful ice sculptures.
As the sun dropped below the horizon this evening a fiery glow covered the western sky. I combined images of the ice and the sunset while using different Photoshop layer blend modes to create the images of "Fire & Ice" for today's post.
