meet fire, my favorite of the two top sales from photographer, MEESH.
I can only image that this is a really distorted picture of stalactite in a cave, but maybe im shooting in the dark 😉
Ice on the other hand is a lot less vibrant.
It looks to be a view of a valley in the middle of a mountain range, or an ocean storm. Whatever it is, it's making me sea-sick.
No disrespect to MEESH, b/c we have an actual artist in the top slot, but I just don't think photography is a challenging medium.
