Canada’s Birthday in Ice and Lights
What a vibrant glow from those red and white lights as they shine through the carved ice!
The colours of our flag.
Celebrations have already started, and there will be all kinds of activities and events taking place in communities all across the country, leading up to July 1st of this year.
This ice sculpture is among several artistic and creative frozen carvings temporarily located in Confederation Park in Ottawa, Ontario, during the Winterlude Festival.
And here is how it looks in the day time – I took that one a few days earlier.
Note: I took the day-time one first as I was passing by…..when I went exploring the area, right along with all kinds of tourists and visitors.
I didn’t realize that the colours would be intensified in the evening darkness, which I noticed yesterday evening on my way to go see a play at the National Arts Centre (located a bit further north of Confederation Park).
