Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
In 2019, the main ice sculptures were moved out to the Byward Market area, and I stopped by one evening during Winterlude and caught carvers putting the finishing touches on their works.
So much fun for photographers!
This is a really nice insight into the work of the ice carvers, William.
Debe ser muy interesante verlos trabajar, en pleno proceso de su creación.
Great captures of the artists at work, the ice sculptures are amazing.Take care, enjoy your day!
That would be a great location.
I guess carving at night when the temperature is at its lowest, and there is no danger if the sun's rays softening the surface is the most efficient time of all.
It must be a fun challenge to take pics like that! Though... 13C make me happy ;-) It´s a beginning...
...cold and beautiful work.
Oh my...that first one...how do people do these impossible things?
Amazing how those curls are carved in the first sculpture.
I hope you are doing well. I had an anxiety attack Tuesday. No fun.(ツ) from Cottage Country Ontario , ON, Canada!

It's nice when you can see the carvers at work.
Seeing the sculptures with the artists really gives a wonderful sense of scale I hadn't always picked up before.
