It is always great when a talented photographer comes by the Ice Castles. Here are some photos taken by Kim Larsen. Her photography blog called Life is Art has several more images. Click on any of the images to see her blog post. Thanks Kim!
So last week we had a snowstorm here in Silverthorne! (when we decided to come here, we thought we’d be saying that weekly rather than every-other-monthly!) Snow fell for most of the evening, and it created a beautiful reddish sky inside the Ice Castle.
Below are some photos from that night. Incidentally a couple of the same photos were published on the Discovery Channel’s website “How Stuff Works” (along with a great article by the way) and in the in the print edition of the Los Angeles Times. The LA Times blogged about the Ice Castles as well, but didn’t use these photos. We’re amazed to have had such amazing news outlets cover the Ice Castles.
So, if you are in Silverthorne tomorrow night and if the predicted storm really does happen and if it is snowing in the evening when the lights are on inside of the ice, we think you can expect to experience something like the photos below. We noticed that night that if you drive around Town when these photos were taken, the sky did not appear as red as it did in the Ice Castles. We’re not sure why that is, but the red sky sure is cool. If any of you know why, we’d love to hear an explanation!
And the photos…
