“Don’t lick the ice”. Were the last words spoken to us as we entered the room for the annual Ice show at the National Gaylord in Washington D.C. Even though I did see tropical colors that reminded me of Italian ice, I never had any desire to lick the ice. As beautiful as the Merry Madagascar show was, this is my favorite memory, so I have separated it from my other photos. Colors and ice created abstract patterns with vivid colors.
