A reminder to members of City Daily Photo: the theme day for March 1st is Black And White In Colour.
Here we have the first of the ice sculptures, starting with some of the set done by pairs of carvers. In some cases I've photographed these twice, from different angles. Mermaids are a recurring theme with ice carvers most years, particularly curvaceous mermaids.
These are brilliant, and I especially love the peacock!ReplyDelete
Fantastic peacock. They not only show detail but detail in various ways. Ice carving is always fascinating.ReplyDelete
Beautiful scultures !ReplyDelete
The peacock is brilliant!ReplyDelete
Um abraço e boa semana.

I can hardly believe my eyes. The detail is really something.ReplyDelete
they need lighting behind them ... like a light show ... so cool!! i bet little kids have a ball ... adults too!! ( ;ReplyDelete
I can't decide which one I like best!ReplyDelete
I think the third one is my favorite.ReplyDelete
I can't believe I've been caught up on blogs two days in a row!
I can't pick a favorite, they are all beautiful. Some of them look so fine that they remind me of glass. Excellent photography, William!ReplyDelete
@Denise: I do too.ReplyDelete
@Sharon: it is!
@Lauren: and so short lived.
@Beth: I still have to photograph in the evening, which I want to do on Saturday evening, Sunday evening at the latest.
@RedPat: it's a tough choice!
@Norma: good for you!
@Bill: they do have that glass sensibility to them.
What artistry! I love the peacock.ReplyDelete
That peacock is a whole other dimension!ReplyDelete
These are still my favorites of all your blogs. The peacock is a fantastic piece.ReplyDelete
I always admire ice sculptures and even the more so because their beauty is rather short lived in the long run.ReplyDelete
These are just unbelievable, William. Thanks so much for sharing them with us.ReplyDelete
Wow, it continues to amaze me how people can create such things!ReplyDelete
Every one of these leaves me in awe.ReplyDelete
Mermaids aside, I love the motion and detail in the surfer piece. And the peacock is amazing, too. (Black and white in color???)ReplyDelete
They are so precise and detailed. I'd rather just sketch, myself. :-) Indoors.ReplyDelete
@Halcyon: so do I.ReplyDelete
@Revrunner: quite so.
@Mari: thank you.
@Beatrice: I agree.
@Catalyst: you're welcome.ReplyDelete
@Linda: me too.
