This snow sculpture was close to the ice sculptures in the Byward Market during Winterlude 2019. It depicts Joseph Montferrand, a lumberman of the 19th century and local legend who became larger than life.
A nearby courtyard hosted an ice sculpture set with items from the European Union encased into the walls.
Other displays could be found in the courtyard for the festival.
Photographing the photographer. Moments later she turned and saw me.
Down at the Lord Elgin Hotel, they used their terrace courtyard to host some ice sculptures too.
This included their traditional ice bench.
It was cold to sit on. I cannot keep a straight face for selfies.
For today I'll leave off with the sculptures outside the hotel's main entrance.
The ice bench is dangerous...😄😄😄ReplyDelete
I keep saying those ice benches are cool!ReplyDelete
Love the sculptures and the bears, cute selfie.
Take care, enjoy your day and happy Easter weekend!
I am not sure whether the birds are two penguins or a penguin and a Great Auk. Either way ice is an appropriate medium for them.ReplyDelete
Great sculptures and a funny selfie!ReplyDelete
...I remember the Lord Elgin Hotel fondly!ReplyDelete
Me imagino, el frío que hará, para que las esculturas se conserve y no se puedan derretir.ReplyDelete

That's a good selfie :)ReplyDelete
oh I like the displays. Your photos weirdly remind me of June/July/August when it's Winter here but Christmas lights are put up in November/December when it's Summer here.ReplyDelete
I can see that.Delete
Thanks for braving the ice bench.ReplyDelete
Great photos, including the selfie:)ReplyDelete
I like the first photo. I couldn't help but think of this beautiful song by Monty Python: https://youtu.be/FshU58nI0TsReplyDelete
