Cold Finale

Today I conclude my Winterlude series for the year with the rest of these pairs ice sculptures lit up in the evening. I do have some material, however, for a couple of theme days down the line, including April, which happens to be One Colour- a reminder to my fellow members of City Daily Photo. 


  1. These are amazing ice works with such an unbelievably fragile appearance.

  2. Amazing to see the detail in these and imagine the patience they require to create.

  3. I can't get enough of these ice sculptures ...

  4. Hello, pretty images of the ice carvings and lights at night. Enjoy your day!

  5. @Rosemary: they're quite delicate.

    @Tom: and quite a bang!

    @Francisco: thanks!

    @Mildred: they take great care to create.

    @Karl: I've enjoyed showing them.

    @Eileen: thank you!

  6. They are so amazing,William. I think you saved some of the best for last!

  7. They are all wonderful, but the first one is awesome!

  10. What a grand finale! I like the delicate crystal clear sculptures.

  11. They are all mighty impressive and some are majestic. Most of us have no clue as to what's required to create such artifacts.

  12. @Bill: they do indeed.

    @RedPat: I've enjoyed showing the series.

    @Jan: I agree!

    @Beth: there are selections for best sculpture. The dragon, if I recall properly, took first place this year.

    @Carol: thank you!

    @Red: they were beauties.

    @Lowell: it's a lot of work.

  13. I've enjoyed this series very much, William.

  14. Beautiful pbotos, you've captured the vibrancy of yhe ice action.

  15. @Janis: Winterlude's a highlight of my year. I'm always sad to see it go- both as it ends and when I'm done featuring it.

    @Marie: I certainly thought so!

    @Sharon: it was indeed.

    @Jeanie: I've enjoyed showing it.

    @Norma: definitely!

    @Christine: I agree.

    @Lady Fi: a good way to put it.

    @Noke: they were beautifully done.

    @Maywyn: thank you!

    @Cloudia: it felt appropriate to end with the night shots.

  16. These ice sculptures are really spectacular.

  17. A fantastic display before the ice curtain comes down. Beautiful work, William. Thank you very much!

  18. Yes, sad to see it done for another year but it's been a wonderful series.

  19. Sigh, I knew this magical show would end. Thanks for Posting.

  20. Hi William!
    Oh my gosh, the detail in some of these is amazing. Well they are all amazing, but some look more fragile and probably more difficult to make. Nice photos also!

  21. A truly fabulous finale to this series William ... thank you.

    All the best Jan
