Photo Feature : "Harbin Ice and Snow Festival"

Photo Feature

Harbin Ice and Snow Festival

Friends,

Harbin Ice Festival of China is well known all through the world due to the beautiful Ice-made structures and various enjoyable activities. Mr. Anup Sah, a well known photo artist of India, is before us with a photo feature on this festival.

--Dr. Pankaj Sharma

“Harbin lies in the Heilongjiang Province of China and this is the frozen North Eastern region of country. Harbin is the capital city of Heilongjiang and borders Russia and Mongolia. This place is China’s most popular winter destination. At the time of their New Year, Chinese organize Ice and Snow Festival in Harbin every year.

Huge chunks of ice are cut from a frozen River and then shaped into translucent sculptures and buildings etc. Colored lights are set inside the structures and the Chinese call them lanterns. A number of activities, like, Skiing/ ice sliding, display of fireworks, football matches etc. take place here. It takes about 3 hours to reach Harbin from Shanghai through flight. We faced minus 30 degree temperature at Harbin this year. In such situation, photography proved to be a difficult task. Here are a few photographs taken during my trip to Harbin. Just have a glance.”
