“It is as beautiful as it is rare. A frost flower is created on autumn or early winter mornings when ice in extremely thin layers is pushed out from the stems of plants or occasionally wood. This extrusion creates wonderful patterns which curl and fold into gorgeous frozen petioles giving this phenomenon both its name and its appearance.”

“Set into the snow, this abandoned house had the artist working in below zero temperatures to get the interior and exterior carved out just right. During the coldest months the dilapidated house was sprayed with thousands of gallons of water and left to freeze. The result was chilling, and at some points looks more like a thick coat of white acrylic.”

I love when I can look at a picture and it sums up everything I love about the Canadian landscape.

Frozen bubbles in a lake in Canada.
This image was taken in winter time in a arid area of the Canadian Rockies. Temperatures where below -30 degrees Celsius yet because there was no snow fall the surface of the lake was uncovered allowing me to see and capture the bubbles (gas release from lake bed) that were trapped in the frozen waters.

Nature, you beast!
There are these big-ass mother fuckers (and by that I mean at least 5 feet long) hanging off the roof of my res, and every time it warms up the teensiest bit, they drop like daggers.
Thing is, you never know when they’re gonna fall. So every time I’m coming up the walkway, I think up a new obituary - always something along the lines of, “Death by icicle.”
Kinda fitting considering where I live.
