Mermaids In Vivid Colour
The lights that are used at night on the ice sculptures in Confederation Park change colours gradually, lingering perhaps thirty seconds before transitioning into the next hue. Here we have the two mermaid statues in different colours.
Good job capturing the colors! Bright!ReplyDelete
The lights are a great idea to draw the crowds back. These are almost more beautiful in technicolor!ReplyDelete
Ooo I love the mermaid in green. Other colors pretty too. Great effects. MBReplyDelete
The red is waking me up!:-)ReplyDelete
They are even more beautiful by night.ReplyDelete
What a grand festival this isReplyDelete
Now those are vivid colors !ReplyDelete
Love your header. I have really enjoyed seeing all those skating shots you posted.ReplyDelete
Your post today has certainly brightened my day. Love the colors :).
Linda: thank you.
Hamilton: it can be just as busy at night as in the day.
MB: they are lovely.
Ciel: it is quite intense, huh?
Halcyon: I think so too.
Mo: it certainly is.
Stuart: very vivid.
Lauren: thank you.
Very cool, William! Literally. Also artistically. I've always like mermaids and have always seen them as having two parts. Guess which part I liked best! :)ReplyDelete
Gorgeous way to show them off, I like how that red just glows!ReplyDelete
Jane: I still really like the mermaid in the 4th picture. Love that "Botticelli" hair!ReplyDelete
Pretty ! I like your header photo ! Thanks for sharing . Have a good day !ReplyDelete
Personally speaking,. the colors seem a bot harsh and detracted from these beautiful ice sculptures; guess I am more of a purist.ReplyDelete
Those look like some very tricky ice sculptures to carve!ReplyDelete
oh i love those colors!!ReplyDelete
The mermaids are fabulous William, I think I like them best simply because they are made from water and live in water... what do you mean mermaids aren't real :)ReplyDelete
It's amazing how different they can look with different colors shining on them.ReplyDelete
Wonderful colours, I think the first one is favourite today.ReplyDelete
@Lowell: there's a link I'll have to add to tomorrow's blog on this subject!ReplyDelete
@LondonLulu: some of these I capture just at their greatest intensity.
@Jane: thank you!
@Country Gal: thanks!
@Beatrice: well, there's nothing wrong with being a purist.
@Furry Gnome: indeed. One mistake, and there she goes...
@Tanya: more of that tomorrow!ReplyDelete
@Grace: no, they're not real!
@Sharon: that's what I like about the differing lights.
@Jan: thank you.
I hope they have waterproof lighting. Very lovely!ReplyDelete
The same sculptures in different colours, cool !ReplyDelete
I especially like the mermaid coloured green. What fun to see the other colours too, though.ReplyDelete
Interesting to see how the colour changes the whole effect of the piece.ReplyDelete
Ariel never looked so good!ReplyDelete
Great idea! Love the colors on ice!ReplyDelete
Oh my word. Those are amazing!!ReplyDelete
Awesome, William. I love the colours!ReplyDelete
@Eve: the light placement tends to be below or above or behind... not inside the ice!ReplyDelete
@Karl: thank you!
@EG: much more of that to come.
@RedPat: yes, it does change the mood of a sculpture.
@Norma: now where's that nasty sea witch?
@Cheryl: thank you!
@Krisztina: they are.
@Linda: thanks for stopping by!
These are just amazing! What a bright spot in a cold winter.ReplyDelete
That it is.Delete
