In Pictures: Launch of London Ice Sculpting Festival 2012

We love these beautiful pictures of the launch of London Ice Sculpting Festival 2012, taken by Mark Baynes.

To celebrate the Diamond Jubilee year, the festival was launched with an ice sculpture of a giant diamond. The free festival takes place today and tomorrow at Canary Wharf – don’t miss it.
