Winterlude comes to an end today in Ottawa and Gatineau, though not in these pages, as there is more to come. Aside from the larger sculptures set out in the team and solo carver competitions, smaller sculptures are set around the Colonel By fountain here in the park. The first thing carvers do on the first weekend is carve a single block, with an hour's time, into a work of art. I took the shots around the fountain after the second weekend, and so some of these sculptures are from both weekends, as the carvers also add more on so that visitors on that second weekend can see them at work. I'm not quite sure why a dark fringe turned up along the way- a reaction to the cold from the camera? I had one other shot, to be held back for a theme day later in the year, that did this as well, as well as another I'll show you soon.
