In some of my blog entries, I’ve talked about the superior quality of Patrick Endres’ ice sculpture photos. I am proud to be able to add more of his work to this site because Patrick is the premier ice sculpture photographer in the world. Patrick’s skill and artistic sense let some ice sculptures last indefinitely in photographs while others just melt away. There are hundreds more ice sculpture photos and thousands of other images from Alaska at his site at www.alaskaphotographics.com. A couple of secrets blog entries that mention him are here and here.
