The ice castle of North Woodstock, New Hampshire (US), is one of six built out of the vision of artist Brent Christensen.
The other five frozen castles are located in Colorado, Minnesota, Utah, Wisconsin and Alberta Canada.
A group of 20 ice artisans took part in the construction of the magnificent sculpture, made up of ‘harvested’ icicles and water spray droplets.
Each castle is lit with LED lights and includes ice slides, thrones and colorful fountains.
