ICE: Chainsaws and Sprinklers

2009.03.09
pixel
CHAINSAWS
The ice sculptures below were created from huge blocks of ice using chainsaws and other tools. Shots were taken a few weeks ago at the Cripple Creek Ice Festival.

SPRINKLERS
The icicle shots below were taken on the edge of the Broadmoor Golf Course yesterday. Apparently a sprinkler head malfunctioned spraying out water for several hours during the night.

As you can see below it was melting - and at a fast rate. Huge chunks of ice began falling from the trees as the temperature by then was close to 60 degrees. Bet most of the ice was gone within a few hours. Just happened to drive by at the right time :)

halfsorry Okay. That golf course stuff is the bomb. How did you find out about it? Was it here in the Springs, or up in WP? I wish I'd have been there. JEALOUS.

i feel WOW in these shots
the first is the best, it is sooo nice!!! A castle..it remind me the Snow Queen Story. Isnt it the castle of her? :D
A beautiful collection :)
In portugal last sunday was the Chocolate Festival. instead of ice sculputures was chocolate sculptures...its a pity the festival was too far away from my home town :D

busybee36 I dont think I could bear to be an ice sculptor and see my work just melt away. Nature did a good job on those icicles at the gold course.
