Here are a few shots of ice carvings from this weekend’s Greenfield Winter Carnival.

A chubby penguin over on the west end of town:

Cute, that.

A unicorn right in the center of town:

Careful with that chisel, Eugene!

This was my favorite, a little polar bear carved by Sue O’Sullivan of Royalston, MA:

…with two chainsaws, a chisel and an electric iron. Who knew?!?   🙂

Not in the judging was this professionally carved swan, donated to the event to get people psyched:

I did everything I could to get a clean shot of this, including laying in the mud, but urban environs aren’t conducive to clean backgrounds… guess that’s why I’m a nature photographer!  😆

The Winter Carnival went on all weekend, but I only got these few “drive-by” shots. The sponsoring Greenfield Recreation Department is happy to have people photograph for free, but I can’t be that guy.

Hey, a man’s gotta eat!

To all of you with love in your life, a big hug.  And to all of you still looking for that special person to go the rest of the way with, an even bigger hug!

And to My Susan, this ice sculpture, found outside of Spoleto Italian Restaurant in downtown Northampton:

It may be a made-up, commercially motivated holiday, but hey, any excuse to say “I love you,” ya know?
