Surfaces of Winter

Frozen water takes many shapes.  There’s more than just beauty and oddity here, there are secrets.  Each piece of snow and ice has an origin story, and as solid as each may seem, they are forever changing.

Saranac Lake Ice Palace – 2014

I hope you have as much fun watching this as we had making it!  It was a very cold day, but cold and ice go hand in hand, so this ultimately became one spectacular ice castle!
