January this year brought freezing rain in Romania, this rare phenomenon, creating a coating of ice on whatever the raindrops contact.
Under the weight of ice layer, power lines and tree branches snapped leaving people without power and with an even more treacherous trek to work.
But along with the inconvenience and damage, the freezing rain has brought some stunning scenes.
Nature encased in ice is alternately beautiful and scary and I've been out with my camera to capture it. Here are some of my photos I would like to share.
