If the summer heat is getting you down, perhaps these beautiful photos from the 2013 World Ice Art Championships in Fairbanks, Alaska will provide some temporary relief. Each of the pieces you see here are from the ‘Single Block’ category, for which each team of one or two members was given one 8’x 5’x 3’ block of ice and a 60 hours period in which to transform that block into an awesome work of frozen art.
From its beginning in 1988, the World Ice Art Championships has grown to a month-long event featuring more than 70 teams from around the world. The 2013 event, which ran from February 26 – March 31 was a great success and scheduling has already begun for the 2014 event (Feb. 24 – March 30, 2014 – 10 am – 10 pm daily)

What’s the point of the random kid staring at the sky?
I reblogged this, but I can’t remember why
LOL R U GUYS SERIOUS THEres a oh no wait i just scrolled back up it really is just a kid staring at nothing now im confused.
I mean I wonder what he could be looking at? a bird? a plane? SUPERMAN? It must be great though because he looks awfully interested in whatever is in the distance because obviously there’s nothing in front of him.
