Snow Monsters of Japan

A Japanese photographer has captured some amazing photographs featuring ‘Snow Monsters of Japan’ which are formed from rime ice. Rime ice forms when the water droplets in fog freeze to the outer surfaces of objects.

The ghostly trees are a fantastic sight and are a celebrated attraction in the mountain areas of northern Japan. The ‘Snow Monsters of Japan’ are called juhyou, which means frost-covered trees.
