Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
...I'd say so!
Incredible detail, William. Do the artists get paid from the city for their efforts?
Amazing ice art!
I'm mesmerized by the stick/wand in the first and second photo. No room for error.JanisGDP
Well done! They are amazing.
Oh wow! These are spectacular William! How talented the ice artists are!
P.s. enjoy your holiday today William ☺
Beautiful ice sculptures! These are gifted carvers!
@Tom: emphasis on cold!@Lowell: there must be some level of compensation. These artists come from all over the world, after all. The federal government runs this event, but there are sponsors too. I imagine funding comes in from both, which also explains the free concerts.@Christine: they are indeed.@Marianne: very much so.@Janis: one error can be catastrophic.@Jennifer: they are indeed.@Grace: thanks!@Nancy: I agree.
Beautiful!Have a wonderful week!
Really wonderful. The ice sculptures can be seen beautifully against the dark background
Again lots of fine detail and very creative. Some whimsical.

horses and wings ... nice details. way cool!! happy week 2 u! ( ;
Wow, so much detail!
Wow, they all look beautiful and so dreamy!
I love that unicorn!
The carvings are spectacular and amazing.
Amazing sculptures! I love the ones with the bit of pink color in them.
These artists must really know what they're doing A wrong chip or two and...ice cubes.
Those are incredible! We visited an ice hotel in Alaska and saw ice carvings but they were mostly on a much larger scale -- lovely but not as intricate as yours. I'm so impressed. (Have also seen the simpler kind on banquet tables, but again, not as much wonderful detail.)
@Lea: thanks!@Jan: and they're even better at night.@Red: that's true.@Tanya: it takes a lot of talent.@Beth: thank you!@Sharon: a lot of it!@Tamago: they do indeed.@RedPat: the Pegasus?@Bill: they've been great this year.@Lois: wait until you see them in full light. The colours come out more strongly in the evening.@Kay: that's true.@Sallie: some of the smaller ones that would fit on tables start out as blocks weighing three hundred pounds.
Great movement in the sculptures!
I looove these, William !And... so many !
Again a fantastic presentation. I was going to say, "I liked--" Then I would look at the next one. I cannot choose.
What a talent, and skill they develop!
Fantastic thing to have them in the city.
@Cloudia: thanks!@Karl: I love them too.@Mari: that happens!@Jennifer: I agree.@Norma: very much so.@Klara: it is, yes.
