Ice Melts Above 32 Degrees Fahrenheit


As I mentioned earlier in the week in regards to this weeks ice carvings I've been posting, the day after they carved the blocks of ice, it warmed above the freezing point for about 36 hours. This caused havoc with the spectacular creations as you can see in the two photos I've posted today. You can sort of make out what some of the carvings are. All of the details are gone and pieces have fallen to the ground. Yet there are a couple ice carvings that I have no idea what it could have been. Despite the melting that has taken place, I really like the way these photos turned out with all of the lights on the trees, the colors the ice blocks are with the lights reflecting. Next year I'll try to get out there on the first night just in case there are warm temperatures once again.

Despite the melting, the scenes you've captured really are beautiful. I love how you've captured the lights.

The lighting in this series is really incredible. I remember one year that had similarly warm temperatures when they were building one of the ice palaces. Must be frustrating to the people putting on the events to be at the mercy of fickle winter weather!

oh no :( After such hard work! The carvings are all beautiful though.

It's amazing to see what people can create with ice!

Can someone put me in contact with the photographer of these ice sculpture photos? The company I work for is interested in purchasing a one time use for it.
