Today Winterlude comes to an end here in Ottawa and Gatineau for another year. It's a public holiday in Ontario called Family Day (a totally fake and pointless day off, mind you...), and it's the last chance to take in the sights. Though I've taken plenty of pics this year, so we're going to be immersed in ice and snow sculptures for awhile.
Here is the second mermaid sculpture in Confederation Park. I've also taken pics of these statues at night fully lit, and those shots will be forthcoming.
You might remember my mentioning a few days that a carver from the United Arab Emirates had carved an ice sculpture here. This is his work, a crocodile.
I wanted a shot of the beast's head.
This last one is from a Mexican carver, and has a Native influence on it.
Moving off into other aspects of Winterlude for a bit, but we'll be back in the park.
