Spectacular Photos of the Magical Ice Castles in Utah


Salt Lake City-based photographer Ben Kuhns, who also happens to be one half of creative network Lunar / Solar, captures some enchanting images of the spectacular towers of ice, aptly known as Ice Castles, in Midway, Utah. The massive, icy structures are given a mysterious appeal through Kuhns’ firsthand perspective. His point of view from afar, within the frosty trails, and beneath the spiky icicles are stunning documents of the space.

Illuminated from within with multicolored LED lights, the castles are given a colorful, though slightly muted, glow that further heightens the enigmatic draw. There’s something within the walls of the structure that beckons spectators to venture forth through the coarsely formed tunnels. Kuhns’ photos brilliantly capture that sense of mystery, magic, and adventure.
