Winter's Icy Grip by Felipe Martin Menzella

Photo location: Kurravaara, Kiruna, Sweden

Camera: Canon 200D + Canon Lens 24mm

In Kiruna, the northernmost town in Sweden, Felipe captured a beautiful icy pattern appearing just before dawn on a frosty window, "frozen to its core".

Very tiny imperfections such as scratches, specks of dust and salt, or the residue from washer fluid are what can cause beautiful leaf-like patterns of frost to form on windows. These surface variations affect how ice crystals form and branch out, forming beautiful patterns, as seen in this photo, which has been captured with excellent attention to detail and framing.
