Sculptures

Here we have another view of that bas-relief from yesterday.


I mentioned snow sculptures when I started to post from Jacques Cartier Park. There were four large ones this year. This is the first.


Here we have the second.


This is the third, with more views of it in tomorrow's post.

  8. We sure do know how to use snow in a myriad different ways! But it will be nice when you are showing us tulips.

  15. @Tom: it is quite something to see.

    @Joan: actually they end up being broken down over time. I believe they close up the park for a couple of weeks to let work crews take down the sculptures, as well as the mounds.

    @Sami: we can enjoy them for a brief time.

    @Italiafinlandia: that's true.

    @Maywyn: thank you!

    @Rosemary: I agree.

    @Francisco: thanks!

    @Marianne: quite true.

    @Janis: very cold!

    @David: tulips are yet to come, but I will be changing my header in mid-March and looking for a tulip shot.

    @Anvilcloud: that's true.

    @Jan: that it is.

    @Eileen: thanks!

    @Grace: you're welcome!

    @Barbara: so do I.

    @Sharon: I do too.

    @RedPat: I agree.

    @Beth: musical notes.

  17. These are awesome! We have something similar in San Diego with sand castles, though these snow sculptures are much bigger. Of course, the sand castles usually last only a day before the tide washes them away!

  23. @Lady Fi: that they are.

    @Carol: thank you!

    @Sharon: I would like to see how the sculpting is done with sand.

    @Jeanie: they definitely are.

    @Bill: you're welcome.

    @Mari: thank you!

    @Denise: it does.

    @Marie: I do as well.

  24. Alas, most of our "snow sculptures" (aka snowmen) from yesterday's storm are almost history this evening. :-)

  25. You nearly made me love snow! So arty. A pity it's "only" snow and gone too soon!

    ReplyDelete
  26. These are quite something! I cannot imagine creating any of these with snow.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Very, very nice. I love the way the snow seems to drape like a curtain in the second one. :-)

  28. Would love to see them up close.
