Description

The headwaters of the Arkansas River are actually in Central Colorado and meander through a narrow canyon. The temperatures in this canyon routinely fall below zero Fahrenheit during the wintertime which allows Nature to create pure magic: Stunning ice-formations form behind boulders and rocks and are being shaped by the fast flowing river into incredible pieces of art. Constantly changing by variations in temperatures or ice floes drifting by. Every single one of these huge ice formations is a one-of-a-kind, some of them (like the one in the attached image) resembling alien lifeforms. And the only way to experience winter's artworks is by flying a drone over the river and photographing straight down.
