Winter From East To West

Each year before Valentine's Day, it is typical to find a heart ice sculpture carved in Confederation Park.


I stopped by where the Kettle Boys were set up; I wanted a photograph of the fire, and a demonstration was going on.


I liked this art installation, consisting of four different posts with representations of flora and fauna.
