Frozen Serbian Spruce Trees Turn National Park Into Alien World
Magical, astonishing and alien-esque scenes
During the harshest climates of winter, the Serbian spruce trees in Finland's Riisitunturi National Park develop thick layers tykky, a hard rime that forms as the supercooled water droplets of a fog veil freeze to the branches of the wind-tousled trees. Long durations of wet and frigid weather conditions can cause some of these tenacious spruce trees to accumulate as much as three to four tons of white ice. Below are some of the magical, astonishing and alien-esque scenes one may witness while wandering the region in the heart of the winter season.
