Photos shown below aren’t about ice sculpture, at least not man-made ice sculpture. These incredible windswept ice formations on top of Mount Javornik, part of a mountain range in eastern Slovenia look like otherworldly. Everything from trees to lookout towers had become completely encased in hard layers of rime ice – a white ice that forms when the water droplets in fog freeze to the outer surfaces of objects. These spectacular photos were taken by weather photographer Marko Korosec. And according to Korosec, the longest ice spikes growing off the tower reached well over 3-feet long.
