‘Fire and Ice’ by Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire;
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve 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 say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Shot on Boxing Day in the Arrandene Open Space in Mill Hill, North London.

A photograph is a trace of its subject. The viewer and the image belong to each other. Capturing these traces is a passion, an obsession for me. I hope the thrill comes through in my images.

    I had immediately Robert Frost in mind, when I saw this image. It is incredibly poetic, a perfect moment between Earth and Heaven.
