A few photos from Winterlude today

Earlier this month Samsung sent OttawaStart a Samsung Galaxy Camera.  Ours to keep, as long as we snap some photos at Winterlude and share them with our readers.  Here are some of my pics from a quick one-hour visit to Winterlude downtown today.  (There are more Winterlude photos in the OttawaStart Flickr Group too.)

I saw lots of photographers on bridges taking shots like this.

This is going to be the most-photographed display at Winterlude this year. Everybody was taking a pic of it.

This was kind of funny.  A "Warm-Up Zone" at City Hall, next to the Rink of Dreams.  Those are outdoor space heaters that people are standing under.

The ultimate Ottawa Beavertail would be a Bridgehead-coffee soaked pastry, fried in Beau's batter wrapped around a Schwarma with cheese curds on the side.

This is a butterfly.  Anybody have tips for how to take good photos of ice sculptures?

Kids were creating their own sculptures using coloured bits of snow.  Cool.

The Korean displays at Confederation Park added a lot of life and colour to the space.
