Hard rime ice fomation on a street sign in Norilsk, Siberia. Hard rime is a white ice that forms when the water droplets in fog freeze to the outer surfaces of objects. It is often seen on trees atop mountains and ridges in winter, when low-hanging clouds cause freezing fog.
A freak winter storm descended on Slovenia in early February 2014, encasing many parts of the country under several inches of ice.“I know my country well, but no one remembers – even the old people – a weather case like this,” photographer Iztok Medja told The Huffington Post Canada. Medja took his camera out to document the effects of the ice storm in a series of stunning photos.
