Sand on Whyte

For the last week the fine folks who run the Ice on Whyte Festival have expended their artistic festival offering into the summer with Sand on Whyte. They have had a bit of a rough go with far from ideal weather, but their creations have held up rather well to the elements.

While not a lot of sculptures they are all top quality. Aside from the great sharp features of the work I really liked how the angles of the sun and the relative dryness/dampness affected the color of the sand.

Chrissy and I were lucky enough to watch some of the artists sculpt their work and it was interesting to see them form their 'slurry' mix and apply it.

My sandcastles at the beach now seem even more pathetic. Time for me to elevate my game.
