We took a ride up to the mountain again over the weekend, to see some amazing ice scuptures. It was a balmy 15 degrees last evening when we arrived at the Icefest, located in the diamond of Ligonier. I almost dropped my camera taking a couple shots, because my fingertips were frozen. It was approaching dusk , so I had to use my night flash the photos didn't turn out too bad! The bird above was just finished when we first arrived.
My husband bending down by the eagle in the shot! The ice sculptures are done by professional ice carvers from a company called Dimartino Ice in Jeannette. They have been doing the Ice Fest here in Ligonier for 18 years. Aren't they excellent?
The dragon was so much more detailed but due to the darkening sky the reflections didn't show.
I felt like a queen sitting in the bear chair, fitting for my love of animals! Cool how they made the chair so folks could be seated! My face seemed blurred, but at least the bear chair turned out!
The bear was poised looking to the sky!
Could you imagine cutting the corners so perfectly on the ship!
They always do a huge piece in the gazebo, and this year it was Elvis Presley! He was my last photo, so the lighting was not perfect. The detail here was awesome!
Thanks to all the wonderful artists for displaying their fantastic art! My photos were only a small sampling of all the gorgeous sculptures displayed in the Icefest! With all the cold weather we've had here, the sculptures could remain for a good while.
