Ice sculptures, untouched by human hands, beautiful as the finest crafted gems. Priceless beauty, made from a little river water, a succession of chilly days, and the rise, fall and flow of the river.
I noticed these treasures on a visit to Concord’s Old North Bridge on January 17, 2019. I photographed them with my little Canon SX700HS point-and-shoot around 5 pm as the sun sank into the Concord River.
I returned on February 3rd to find they had greatly changed, but were now beautiful in a different way.
By February 4th, they were all gone.
These photographs are the only record of these unique, priceless, evanescent gems.
