And here are some of the sculptures that are at Confederation Park during Winterlude. The ice carvers did a pretty good job in my opinion… amazing what you can do with a few blocks of ice and a chainsaw!
Taking pictures of ice sculptures is pretty challenging though. First, the park was crowded and just getting close to the works was hard. Then, ice reflects the light and needs to be contrasted with a darker background to be seen better. Finally, when you are holding a maple toffee in your right hand, holding the camera becomes quite difficult… especially if said maple toffee is starting to melt on your fingers. What? I have to enjoy a treat for being outside when it’s –15C!
