Breathtaking Photos Reveal Sculptural Ice on a Mountain in Slovenia

Post 4080

Photographer Marko Korosec captured the breathtaking results of what happens to a place when it’s subjected to a long period of snow, wind, and ice. For 10 days, extreme weather pummeled the area of Mount Javornik, part of a mountain range in eastern Slovenia as well as a popular ski locale. Korosec later scaled the terrain and discovered something that’s out of this world. High winds and freezing fog formed layers of rime ice and covered a tower, trees, rocks, and more.Thanks to these harsh conditions, large ice spikes emerged from the landscape like a magnificent sculpture. Korosec says that some of them reached well over 3-feet long! His photos appear as a moment suspended in time, and highlight the awesome beauty as well as the great power of Mother Nature.
