Lighting The Sculptures

Here we have the World War One Centennial ice sculpture fully lit.


It's a stark contrast to yesterday's capture of the sculpture in daylight.


The couple, of course, is the focal point of the entire display.


Not that far off in the park, the campfire caught my eye that evening. Numerous people were sitting around it, and I wondered what might come up with a shot. The flame dominates the image.

  3. Thanks for your recent comments on my photoblog. I really like these ice sculptures and would love to sit and watch one being made, but that would be a very cold experience.... ;)

  5. Wow, those are magnificent ice sculptures. The fire shot is pretty cool too. I think the way the fire dominates the image leaving all but the hands of the people in shadow gives the image a rather dramatic appeal.

  12. The lighting really brings the sculptures to life. Kind of like the inner "light" that sometimes shines through a person's personality. The campfire brings back all kinds of good memories of my youth and beyond! Our daughter and husband in the Colorado mountains still have a campfire for the locals every Saturday evening.

  15. @EG: I rather prefer the sculptures lit up!

    @LondonLulu: and warm too!

    @Luis: they really draw a lot of attention in the evenings.

    @Jane and Chris: more of that to come.

    @Furry Gnome: and the lighting also changes gradually with these things.

    @Lowell: I've always enjoyed a good campfire. Some marshmallows make it all the better!
