Ice Sculpture surrounded by tree lights.
During the Luminary Loppet, in addition to ice sculptures, they hang these little candle holders in the trees at the northwest corner of the lake by the Icecopolis.

The Luminary Loppet is scheduled for this Saturday. I’m not sure if it’s going to happen with all the warm weather we’ve had this week. This photo is of the Icehenge under construction. You can see what it looked like last year here. I had a lot of fun taking this photo, shooting into the sun is not a recommended, but once in a while it works.
A dark and hazy night in the big city.
The Loppet this year was the busiest I’ve ever seen. The luminary sculptures are fascinating points of interest for the wandering crowds. For one night a year, the rather quiet lake is the busiest tourist attraction in town. I love that you can see all the people on their phones either taking pix or tweeting or something. This was shot by the PoleCam!
