snow sculptures | photographer racine, wi

so we decided to venture out of our house and into this bitter cold weather we are having to check out a snow sculpture competition downtown.  WOW, these guys are some true artists.  not only does their work look amazing, they do this in 15 degree weather....so not my thang, but I was in awe of how intricate these were and how much they paid attention to the details.  here are a few.

they take an idea ~ some in form of a sketch, some a model and some from a photo.


here is what their canvas looks like


and this is the end result






look at the detail









j had a good time just running around (had to include a pic of him)





towards the end of the night he decided to hang out on, what he thinks is his new chair, enjoying the Christmas tree









someone got jealous and wanted their picture taken as well





have a great week everyone.

  2. What a fabulous blog! These photos are so crisp, clear...and totally enthralling. I think I have a nephew in Racine; he's an Army recruiter.

    Looking forward to following your photo stories.

  3. That serpent model is a very good one for an ice sculpture in terms of details. I am blown away with it looking great as a replica.
