While recently perusing a copy of "Midwest Home" magazine, I came across an article about Jennifer Hedberg's winter ice lanterns.
Fire & Ice - Midwest Home - November-December 2011 - Minneapolis, St. Paul, Minnesota.
What a perfect idea to cure the wintertime blues. I wanted to see what kind of images I could make of these. Who would have known it was going to be 40 some degrees during the day in January in Minnesota? I made two ice lanterns - but they are in my freezer. You will have to come back to hear how that project develops. Maybe February or later this month? So far, I got a few images but I am expecting to do something more impressive than this including some exterior architectural shots at night.
Want to try it yourself? You can order these at Wintercraft. Here is a link:
They are also available for purchase at Kowalski's, Patina, Goodthings, or select Bachman's to mention a few.
