This was taken at the Ice Park in Fairbanks, Alaska, site of the World Ice Art Championships. In addition to amazing one- and multi-block sculptures from some of the world's best artists in the field, the venue included mazes and slides to entertain kids of all ages. This set of slides was tucked away in a far corner of the park, but with the laughter and delighted screams bubbling out of it, it was by no means hidden. I spent about twenty minutes taking photos of all the activity. This is my favorite. I like the way the ice slides absorb the colored lights and the contrast between the static foreground figure and the movement in the background.
