Today I have more of the pairs ice sculptures in Confederation Park. These ones are sheltered, which keeps them out of the sun and the wind, which can have weathering on the ice. This way, the sculptures maintain a translucent quality throughout Winterlude, while sculptures out in the elements gradually take on an opaque quality.
Wow! That fisherman is wonderful, net and all!ReplyDelete
It is amazing what you can do with ice. To bad it will all disappear...ReplyDelete
The two faces intrigue me.ReplyDelete
Esta arte no gelo me fascinaReplyDelete
Estas duas faces são impressionantes
Um abraço William
Are they normally undercover? I can see the logic of that.ReplyDelete
@Marianne: it is short lived.
@Janis: me too.
@Gracita: thank you.
@Lauren: yes, the shelters do a good job shielding them.
WHOLE new level!ReplyDelete

WOW, William, these are fantastic art works !ReplyDelete
Too bad that they are made of ice and not of glass...
I'm always amazed at how delicate these sculptures look.ReplyDelete
You show ome very fine detail. Yes, the detail has only to melt a little and it's gone.Delete
@Cloudia: very much so.ReplyDelete
@Tanya: they are indeed.

There was an ice sculptor on the Today show this morning, showing one of his works.
@Gunn: you're welcome.ReplyDelete
@Beth: they are indeed.
@Marleen: they are.
@RedPat: I agree.
@Norma: I wonder if it could have been one of these carvers. There were Americans among the carvers.
an incredible and temporary art form
Fantastic. I liked the dancing fish.ReplyDelete
Who knew you could do all that with what is essentially an ice cube.ReplyDelete
Stop! Stop with these remarkable ice sculptures. You're making me feel useless.ReplyDelete
As I look through your beautiful photos, it occurs to me that they are predicting about zero temps today. sigh. I guess we'll never get there.ReplyDelete
