It's no secret: We have soft spot for time-lapse photography. There's as much magic in the artificial advance of time as there is in slowing it down. It's simply hyper-real. Enjoy these short but sweet moments of time travel!

Saranac Lake Ice Palace Construction
Imagine waking to the sound of chain saws cutting through ice that is almost two feet thick accompanied by the beeping of front-end loaders driving in reverse. A quick glance out the window reveals a flurry of activity in the town of Saranac Lake, on the edge of the lake itself: saws, trucks, cranes, and of course, people - no - volunteers. It's all about building a fairy-tale from ice, a piece of art that is as magnificent as it is transient. Not unlike mandalas made of sand, it comes and it goes - every year. It won't be complete for a few days yet, but it will no doubt be ready for the 117th annual Saranac Lake Winter Carnival (January 31 - February 9, 2014). Watch this day in the construction of an ice castle.
