Lights cast a sculpture into a way you wouldn't have otherwise seen it before, as is the case with these sculptures.
When I first photographed the games sculpture above, I didn't quite show all of it- below, we see the Rubiks cube, a marble, and jacks, if I'm not mistaken.
I thought the horses and rider merited shots in different light.
A reminder to fellow photobloggers: the first of March will be a CDP theme day, on people in the street.
These are absolutely stunning, William!!!ReplyDelete
The last one is my absolute favourite with the pink turning to turquoise or the other way round.ReplyDelete
They are so beautiful. The light makes them even more spectacular. I'm really enjoying this series.ReplyDelete
I continue to be amazed at how the elements can be cantilevered so far out yet not break off.ReplyDelete
I really do love all of these. You have done a great job of photographing them.ReplyDelete
That horse and rider sculpture is amazing!ReplyDelete
i agree with lol!ReplyDelete
Such a brilliant series of shots William.. The last image is fabulous.ReplyDelete
The horse and ride is magnificent because of the way the sculptor captured the forward motion ... looks like they're flying through the air.ReplyDelete
Re your comment on Ocala: There's a large herd of cows not far from us which has in its midst one donkey. The word here is that donkeys will protect the cows from predators such as coyotes of which we have more than a few. Maybe that's why the "calming" effect. I'll have to do more research on this! :)
I like seeing that surfer in bright shocking pink! The horse and rider are fantastic.ReplyDelete
Amazing how they can make those beautiful ice sculptures. Thanks for sharing your shots of this fairytale like show.ReplyDelete
Love the horses!ReplyDelete
I love the horses.ReplyDelete
@Linda: thank you!ReplyDelete
@Ciel: I wanted at least some of these shots to have those transition sort of feel to them in the colours.
@Stuart: they're so delicate, but the shelter does wonders in keeping them in good shape.
@Lauren: thank you kindly!
@Debs: it was one of my favourites!
@Grace: thank you!ReplyDelete
@Lowell: it does feel like that. And it wouldn't surprise me that donkeys have that role with a herd as well. Llamas also do something rather similar.
@LondonLulu: who'd have thought pink would work as a colour?
@Jan: you're welcome!
@Norma: they're cool!
@Sharon: that seems to be the consensus.
Love the surfer dude but Horses are my favorite--always.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the reminder about March 1 and theme day. MB
Wow, you got so many "keepers!"ReplyDelete
Love the second shot.
such talented carvings!ReplyDelete
thanks for coming by! yes, the whistling ducks devour bird seed, chicken scratch feed, anything they seed related. :)
I can't get over the difference the colour makes!ReplyDelete
A wonderful series, thanks William! It would be great to see something like this for myself one day.ReplyDelete
Beautiful artwork, I wonder how long they last before they melt, they should be preserved in a museum...ReplyDelete
@MB: you're welcome!ReplyDelete
@Linda: it amazes me that game board stood up through the whole festival. It was so slender.
@TexMexGirl: that's the first I have heard of ducks doing that!
@RedPat: it's very dramatic. I enjoyed seeing the ice carving over at your page.
@Denise: thank you. It's a February tradition here.
@Karl: they should be, but alas, that's not to be!
Goodness! The light colors change? These are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Yes, a gradual change.Delete
I think the pink surfer is my favorite from this group! They are all beautiful though.ReplyDelete
Love the horses!ReplyDelete
I do too.Delete
I love the imaginations of the carvers.ReplyDelete
So do I.Delete
