Here are the third place winners in the single block competition.

This one took third in the abstract category, and was so intricate it was hard to photograph.

Ice sculpture

This one’s called Water and Fire, and the artists are Ivan Zuev and Eduard Ponomarenko, from Russia.

This one’s my favorite — but you ought to know by now that I like horses!

Ice Sculpture

Bullseye, by Steve and Heather Brice, USA. I think they’re local.

I went out to the ice park again yesterday, and photographed a few of the multi-block carvers in action. They’re about halfway through and while the sculptures as a whole are still anyone’s guess, some pieces are coming together. Again, click on the tumbnails if you want to see the larger versions.
