Default Snow Sculptures, Coolpix SQ images

Here is another winner of Michigan Tech's Winter Carnival. It is a recreation of Arnold Friberg painting centers the statue around George Washington. I took these snapshots with my SQ. Since the lens of the SQ is not wide enough, a wider view is not possible. How about a panorama? Not a good idea due to the fact that visitors are around the statue. All images were resized, slightly leveled and curved (some with brightness/contrast adjustment), and sharpened for web. So, the image adjustment is quite minimal.

This is the work of a student organization, "Campus Crusade for Christ." It is not the grandest; but, it is certainly one of my favorites. Here is about 70% view of the scene

Here are two views of George Washington:

Two starving soldiers:

Cannon and cannon balls

Please don't be too picky about the artistic expression. The authors are 20+ kids (i.e., boys and girls) and they made this statue to happen under a tremendous course pressure. After all, Michigan Tech U is perhaps the toughest university in Michigan, and, hence MTU=Michigan Toughest University (in students' words). :-)

They look excellent. Hard to believe snow will hold together like that.
