It's been common at Winterlude for a series of photographs to be incorporated into a wall of ice in Confederation Park, on behalf of a government organization. In this case, Parks Canada is showcasing one of the national parks of the north, Torngat Mountains National Park, which takes up the far northern stretches of Labrador. It can be seen circled on the map. The word derives from the Inuktitut word Torngait, which means place of the spirits. The photos were taken during a trip Parks Canada set up for students in the summer of 2016. Hopefully the captions are readable if enlarged.
What a great project and the photographs are amazing.ReplyDelete
What a great way to advertise Canada's parks. That must have been quite a trip for those students. They took impressive photos.ReplyDelete
Ingenious! And what an amazing looking place - a bit different from Neasden.ReplyDelete
what a neat way to display them. so cool! ( ;ReplyDelete
Gosh how lucky were the students.. what a trip, that's something they will always remember!ReplyDelete
@Janis: it is quite a concept.ReplyDelete
@Denise: it's a trip they'd never forget.
@Mike: and different from here too.
@Beth: very cool!
@Grace: they definitely will.
Great way to present the photos of that impressive park.ReplyDelete
I agree with all above.ReplyDelete
Great idea.Our big trip this year is to Canada!ReplyDelete
The North has many places of awesome beauty. It's a wise move to reserve some of it for parks. setting photos in ice is very eye catching.ReplyDelete
Beautiful country full of wild life and nature.ReplyDelete
Happy Valentine's Day, William.
Thank you, Valentine :)ReplyDelete
A wonderful project and wonderful photos!ReplyDelete
@Jan: it is!ReplyDelete
@Janey: enjoy the visit!
@Red: I'd love to see this park someday.
@Sharon: it has a lot of that.
@Orvokki: thank you!
@Cloudia: you're welcome!
@Lowell: I agree!
Photographs in ice, what a wonderful and original way to show them!ReplyDelete
I'm impressed. No matter what time of year, you always seem to have an outdoor exhibit on somewhere. Looks really cold for you now.ReplyDelete
I love this wall of ice exhibit! Great way to display those photos. I did spot polar bear in the last one :-)ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos, William, and I love Polar Bears! Happy Valentine's Day to you. :)ReplyDelete
I love polar bears, too!ReplyDelete
Happy Valentine's Day, partner!
Great way to exhibite the photos in the open (freezing) air.ReplyDelete
That is really an isolated area - so far up there!ReplyDelete
I love that photo of the captain's hands. Or is it a painting? Either way it's exceptional.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful way to display the photos. Fits right in to the theme and also shows people what else in going on in the north. Well done, William!ReplyDelete
@Marleen: it is a very good idea.ReplyDelete
@Lauren: it's suitably cold. As long as it stays below freezing, that's fine.
@Tamago: yes, he's quite small in the shot, but he is there.
@Norma: thank you!
@Marianne: it is!
@RedPat: if you'd want to visit, you'd have to go by sea or air. No roads up there.
@Catalyst: if we're talking about the same one, I think those are the hands of a First Nations elder holding a drum.
@Bill: it's a good way to tie into the festival.
I couldn't read the captions but the photos are very evocative and the place looks beautiful. Obviously, none of our national parks are that far north and this environment would be really interesting.ReplyDelete
A good wall to build. :-)ReplyDelete
Interesting photos and a great idea.ReplyDelete
Very interesting and cool exhibit.ReplyDelete
Love your header photo William. That is some serious freezing...
Nice exhibit, but the shy bear stole the show.ReplyDelete
While it was a bit difficult to really appreciate these exhibits, WIlliam, I;m sure that up close and personal they were far more interesting.ReplyDelete
Nice to see photo art set up with the other art!ReplyDelete
@Kay: while the parks in Alaska are quite far north, it seems there's at least one park up on the Canadian islands that's further.ReplyDelete
@Revrunner: I agree.
@Pat: thanks! I hope to get up in that direction sometime this weekend.
@Mari: oh yes!
@Beatrice: they were.
@Linda: it is!
