Excuse me, Spring? Are you ever going to come out to play? | Ice Castles, NH A chilly adventure to the Ice Castles in New Hampshire!

I don’t know about you, friends, but I am so ready for Spring to finally arrive here in Massachusetts!  While the blog has been in a bit of hibernation mode, I’ve been gearing up for getting outside again for what I know is going to be the best year for Caroline Talbot Photography yet!  It’s going to be an exciting season, guys!

While the snow sloooooowly melts around our home, Josh and I decided to take a trip up to Lincoln, NH to visit the highly talked about Ice Castle before they wrapped up for the season.  Let me tell you, it was worth the trip!  We had a very chilly and fun afternoon exploring.  It was amazing to see in person!

I felt so tiny walking around the space.  It’s hard to believe that its all entirely man made each year, from the archways, to the main tower of the castle, to the ice slide (which apparently had quite the rough landing after a season of melting and re-freezing!).

As sunset approached, the sun peeked over the horizon, it sparkled through the beautiful patterns in the ice sculptures as the castles slowly illuminated for their evening light shows.

While it grew darker by the minute, the castles were filled with music as the ice glowed and danced with color.

I was so glad we were able to make this trip.  It definitely fueled my sense of adventure, and I am so ready for spring to be here to kick off the adventure of the 2015 season!
