Ice Carving in St Charles 2013-01-26 10

These are some examples of the ice carvers' efforts. They are a bit strange. A wolf and a mountain lion in a face-off? Three Little Pigs, one of whom seems to be standing on a portable oven and holding a fork? Mr. Clean after swallowing a wheel and tire? A local TV station affiliated with an abominable news network (although this station does carry The Simpsons)? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Sorry no comments yesterday. Got home from work way late.

Not your standard ice swans or ice angels. Like I said before, STL definitely has a quirky bent.

wow, some people sure know what to with the ice. I just walk on it and that's not much fun!

The action shots on the previous posts are fantastic! I actually enjoyed them more than the sculptures, which are great, of course.
