Snow Sculptures And Evening Light

This is the finished sculpture I showed you as a work in progress yesterday. The building that was asked about behind most of these shots is the Aberdeen Pavilion, which I've shown on previous occasions.


The sculptures have a different mood when they're photographed in the evening, with coloured light shining on them.

  1. They do look fab lit up in the evening William. Such a different feel to the snow sculptures against the ice sculptures!

  6. With the colored light, they are magical. No threat of melting?

  20. @Lowell: it does!

    @Tamago: thanks!

    @Bill: they are.

    @Tex: me too.

    @Jan: it is!

    @Luis: it's a pleasure to show them.

    @Gunn: you might be thinking that of King Kong!

    @Sharon: yes it's Kong. At least a variation on him.

    @Cloudia: thank you!

    @Karl: they do, yes.

    @VP: I can't!

    @Red: I do too.

  21. They are pretty lit up at night. You must have lots of snow there to use for the sculptures or is it trucked in.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Still looking pretty chilly, but at least it's pretty! I would love to see this in person. I'd stand the cold....

    ReplyDelete
  23. My favourite is the light in the first shot!

    ReplyDelete
  24. @Pamela: it's trucked in. They compress the snow in a facility so that it stays together, and it turns up at the sites in wooden crates that are either square or rectangular. The carvers remove the sides and go to work.

    @Pat: the cold can be a challenge for the photographer! Thick gloves, you can't work the camera. Thin gloves, the hands get cold...

    @Ciel: thank you!

    @RedPat: it is.

    @Noke: thank you.

    @Marleen: they do!

    @Norma: indeed!

  30. How lovely to see the lighting on these temporal sculptures at night. Your header photo is fabulous.

  31. These look softer (of course) and more playful than the ones done in ice.

  32. I just wish I wasn't an old fart, and could go in at night. The night driving, around here, is scary, though! Lovely photos.
