Palaces of Ice - 05 Jan 2014
Glowing sculptures stand out against the night sky during the 30th Ice and Snow Festival in the northern Chinese city of Harbin.

Almost 10,000 workers were employed to build the glittering structures, according to organisers. The mammoth task required some 180,000 square meters of ice and almost as much snow.
