I have mentioned the site The Big Picture before, and even dedicated a post to it. This site showcases some amazing photography, and also highlights events we might not otherwise see in normal news outlets. I was struck by today's feature, the 25th Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival at a park in Harbin, Heilongjiang Province. The fact that all of these structures are made of ice and colored and lit within is hard to believe. The size of these structures is staggering, and must have been even moreso in person.
The two pictures above are just a taste, you have to see them all. On the actual Big Picture site, the pictures are huge and you can really see the detail. Click here.
