Lakes and ponds might look nice, but the cold of winter just elevates them to another dimension. As you might have seen in our previous post, freezing water creates an astonishing variety of patterns: from jagged lines or frozen bubbles to perfect snowflakes with every imaginable shade of blue, green and white.

How surreal is the fact that you can walk over this beauty!  Vote for the most impressive views from all over the world and if you also have a photo that captures this stark beauty, be sure to add it here!
