Thousands of ice sculptures melt in Berlin
Ice sculptures melt in the sun on a stairway leading to the concert hall at Gendarmenmarkt or central square in Berlin, Germany, on Sept. 2. Environmental group WWF (World Wide Fund For Nature) created the sculptures to call public attention to the dramatic consequences of the warming of the Arctic region. The cathedral of Deutscher Dom is pictured in the background.
