Picking up where I left off yesterday, here we have the third of the big snow sculptures at Jacques Cartier Park.
And here is the last of them.
A look back takes in the four sculptures.
There are playground pieces in the park that are used more in warmer weather, though I did see some kids making use of them during my visit. This, I think, is a teeter totter, but an unusual one.
I thought of using it for the upcoming theme day- the top is a dark green- but on a cloudy day like this one, it comes across in a photograph as black. I did photograph other items in this area that will be turning up in those colour theme days later in the year, including one for the Green one.
A couple of last looks back at that bas-relief on the mound of snow. Tomorrow I return back across the river to continue with things for Winterlude in Ottawa.
...these are a far cry form the days when I built a snowman in our front yard.ReplyDelete
I really like the Ice Sculptures but after seeing the snow sculptures I guess I find them entertaining.ReplyDelete
I like the ice sculptures better too.ReplyDelete
I like the ice sculptures very much. If only I can see them in person. Thank you, William. So relieve to know I won't be losing my blog after all. Have a fabulous weekend!ReplyDelete
It's a pity that these beautiful ice sculptures will melt one day ! All this work for a rather short time and not for the eternity !ReplyDelete
São fantásticas estas esculturas, aproveito para desejar um bom fim-de-semana.ReplyDelete

I have enjoyed your visit at Jacques Cartier Park, especially the big snow sculptures are wonderful.ReplyDelete
Those last two photos with the people in them are magical! The movement of people against the stillness of snow is so special.ReplyDelete
Hello, love the snow sculptures. Enjoy your day, have a great weekend ahead!ReplyDelete
Love the snow sculptures William, like the shot where you can see them all. It looks so blooming cold 😱 Well done on thinking ahead for the theme colours 😊ReplyDelete
I am always amazed at snow sculptures.ReplyDelete
Not having an artistic background, I have not know the meaning of 'bas-relief' until I looked it up after reading your post yesterday.ReplyDelete
I enjoy all the snow sculptures, but the ice sculptures are my favorites. :-)ReplyDelete
@Tom: they are quite artistic!ReplyDelete
@MB: I like both.
@Joan: both do well.

@Gattina: we can only enjoy them while they last.
@Jan: I've enjoyed showing it.

@Janey: I am as well.
@Anvilcloud: I was familiar with it.
@DJan: thank you!
That is a humungous pile of snow.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing the man-made beauty of your winter with me. I'm grateful for someone who lives in colder climates, for your gearing up with whatever keeps you warm, and then looking through your lens to get just the right shot. As they used to say, I bet a few ended up on the cutting room floor.ReplyDelete
Those sculptures are beautifully done.ReplyDelete
Love the unicorn and that is a tee totter that I haven't seen before!ReplyDelete
I do hope you take time for a good slide on a sled. The teeter totter looks like fun.ReplyDelete
That teeter totter looks unusual indeed! I've never seen one like this!ReplyDelete
Great photos.I am so impressed with these snow sculptures. I've never heard of a teeter totter before. Not actually sure how it is used.ReplyDelete
You will have to go back in summer to show us that teeter totter at work!ReplyDelete
The snow sculptures are amazing to see.ReplyDelete
Divine 'at play' snow sculptures ~ winter delight!ReplyDelete
