Emerald

Earlier on in the series I mentioned this ice sculpture that had something of an abstract feel to it. It was designed to get close to for photo ops, and I decided to take several different detail shots of it under the green light.


Nearby was this structure- an unusual bench.


Here we have another look at the CBC sculpture.


I decided to take a close up shot of one of the windows, replicas of the House of Commons stained glass. Tomorrow we're back here, but in daytime conditions.

  3. I´d like the green guy in our red-green kitchen! And that bench would have a sister right here on the wall (yes, on the wall - too uncomphy to sit on, thanks, IKEA!! What a stupid idea. And I fell for it... Ingo put it on the wall. "Art" now...)

  14. Now with the green photos at the top I thought they made some green water , froze it and then carved so i was disappointed when I found out they were using lights.

  24. The lighting makes such a difference. I never visited in the dark, though.

  25. That first sculpture looks like liquid jade.

  26. That is definitely not my favorite shade of green and I actually prefer the ice sculptures in their native ice state, William.

  27. The coloured lights through the ice is amazing:)
