I had gone on the opening day of the Festival du Voyageur hoping for some shots of the ice and snow sculptures. Unfortunately the warm temps had reduced the majority of the sculptures to piles of snow with some sculptors struggling against the elements to maintain their particular creations.

I found this image of the snowshoes near the entrance to the Festival and I just like the form and color of the pairs of snowshoes and the almost human like face on the pair of snowshoes that was second from the left.

A very colourful image Jan - and as you say, the 'face' on the second from the left helps the picture.

Now all I can say as these are Designer Snowshoes. Never saw anything but the traditional snowshoes with the twisted twine holding ones's foot off the ground. Has an abstract look and feel to it - all but that second one - appears to be smiling for the camera.

Very ornate and colourful Jan, the sculptures failed but the shoes didn't,
