Frosty Wonders Of Art

 More from Winterlude 2020, with ice sculptures photographed at night during this particular visit to Sparks Street.


Another wider view of the street itself.


This winged bench made a popular photo op.


Another look at Louis Riel lit up. The sculpture held up pretty well throughout Winterlude that year.


This wooden sculpture made for a different kind of bench.


I came back one day in daylight. The CBC has its main Ottawa studios on Sparks Street, and this sculpture in ice was near it.


The first two sculptures I started with for this post are seen here in daylight.
