Ice Scuptures

Attended ” Ice on Whyte”  an annual show of ice and snow sculptures hosting artists from around the world who feature incredible work. One of the features is a huge slide made out of snow for children and adults. In the evening rotating spotlights cast different hues on the ice.  There was an entertainment tent where a live band was playing some good blues and hot chocolate was available for a donation to the local youth shelter.

It was -10 celsius when I attended, quite liveable  if you were dressed properly.Crazy weather, a couple of days above zero then down, then up. yesterday was -29 C with wind chill factor of -43. Today is warmer with less wind but still the equivalent about -33 C. Nasty!

    Hi Jane! I don’t know if you have seen it (I’m guessing you have) but I publish a digital magazine version of my blog Junsjazz Images & Inspiration of which five issues are already online. Its not a commercial magazine, just another online project of mine, an offshoot of my blogging. I plan to release the latest issue by end of February and I’d like to devote a spread for a guest photographer to showcase his/her works (probably 5 to 6 images). Some 12 photo bloggers have already been featured in the past three issues. I would be honored to have your amazing works presented in Issue #6, if it is alright with you. Of course there will be backlinks to your blog and full credit to you for all your works that may appear in the magazine. Here’s the link to my digital magazines: http://junsjazzimages.wordpress.com/digital-magazine/ I await your reply. Thanks!

        Hello Jane! Thanks for the green light. I wouldn’t want to bother you with anything so I’ll just pick 6 images from your blog which will best represent your love for nature. But I have a request, can you make a short write-up (4-5 sentences) about yourself, where you live, what you look out for when taking pictures, when did you start in photography, things like those. Kindly send me this write-up at my email address – jazzmanjun@gmail.com. Sorry for the bother. Thanks again. Welcome aboard Issue#6!

        Hello Jane! Sorry for the bother, but I’d like to remind you of the short write-up I requested for the magazine. I have laid-out your two-page feature, it just needs a great write-up from you to tell readers about your photography. Kindly email it at jazzmanjun@gmail.com. Anytime next week will be fine. Much thanks and happy weekend!

    • Not off-hand but I could check it out. I do find ice hard to shoot, especially when the lights shining on them are not in an ideal location from my perspective. I was hand-holding my camera because I left the attachment for the tripod at home

  4. Beautiful ice sculptures Jane. I’m amazed how artists create these! Once the show is over, do they allow the sculptures to remain for the season? Hope so! Also, your temps have me shivering in my seat. I could not imagine temps that low! We’re complaining here trying to deal with upper teens and wind, which I’m sure would feel like spring to you right now! 🙂

    • We have swung back up to warm temps again and the sculptures will eventually melt.but spring is a long way away yet.We are having a teeter-totter winter.
