Ice Sculptures at Winterlude

I took a walk around Confederation Park with Natasha one night when it wasn’t too cold out, and admired this year’s crop of beautiful ice sculptures. I think my two favourites were this ice cherry blossom tree (in a snow zen garden) and this screaming eagle – the detail and texture in the wings is incredible. Super fun – I’d like to carve some ice soon (it’s pretty easy to find!) but I have to admit I’m not sure I’d have the patience to scrape away at a frozen block for hours in sub-zero temperatures. Maybe if I lined up a chain of hot chocolates and beaver tails to fuel me through the ordeal. 🙂
