Turning back to 2016 and Winterlude, I took this photo from the Bank Street Bridge early one evening, with the Moon rising to the east as skaters were below on the Canal.
Confederation Park beckoned me on a day before the festival when set up was underway.
A view of some of the shelters for the large ice sculptures.
Work was just starting on a big one out here. The boxes at left- all ice. The blocks are made in a factory setting and shipped here. The result is clear cut ice.
That big sculpture in progress.
The first weekend, the pairs and solo carvers get to work on their creations. It's a treat to watch them at work.
