Ice Sculpture (Follow-Up)

In mid December, an ice sculpture of a polar bear (with a little cub) was made in our town square. Since we've had a such a cold winter, the sculpture is still standing, even if 2½ months of snowing and a bit of occasional thawing in between has altered the shape a little. The picture on the left is from when the sculpture was new. The one on the right is from today.

For more comparisons, see posts from
* 14 December 2009 (the making of the sculpture)
* 17 December (the finished sculpture)

That is great. I've heard of them but never seen one.

This is such a good comparison! The sculpture is huge, but sweet at the same time. I did look at the older posts; was fire used in the making of this? I saw the one picture of fire in your collage.

@ Ginny: No, to my knowledge fire was not used in the making of the sculpture (I did not watch the whole procedure). It took place at a Christmas market including a Santaland and the fire was part of that whole "setup".

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
