    -Snow Sculpting Contest-
    -Zehnder's Snowfest 2009 in Frankenmuth Michigan

    These sculptures are pretty amazing! This one was about 12-15 feet tall. Even up close they give the appearance of stone. I'm not sure which team did this. They had snow sculpting teams from all over the world for this.

    I used a polarizing filter to take these photos, and processed them as HDR. Without the filter it was difficult not to get them too blown out with the bright sun and snow. I actually thought they looked quite good straight out of the camera, but preferred the HDR on them.
