Beautiful Ice Sculptures

Have a look at my writer's blog today for my perspective on the ending of the occupation of Ottawa by the so called 'freedom convoy' in recent days.

Today we turn to Winterlude 2015, and in Confederation Park the big sculptures were as beautifully carved as ever.

Out around the fountain, the small sculptures had their own charms.

  6. These are so beautiful. You said these are previous Winterlude because it was canceled? That's too bad. This has to be a wonderful event, though I suspect it would have been odd this year with all going on in Ottawa. As always, lovely photos.

  8. After all that work to make an ice sculpture, it must be sad to see it disappear.
