China’s ice fish

Harbin International Ice Festival takes place annually in north east China. We took the overnight soft sleeper train from Beijing. Local winters are a new experience for anyone not used to daytime temperatures averaging minus 12 Centigrade dropping to -23 Centigrade at night. But on returning to Beijing’s           -1 Centigrade, the weather seemed clement.

These fish ice sculptures were created by international teams in Harbin’s city centre park, the original site for the Ice Festival.
Freezing temperatures ensure that visitor can enjoy Harbin’s fish ice sculptures for three months every winter
I’m not sure what species these fish are
Enjoy the pictures
