With the passing of a cold front recently, the Sifangdingzi Mountain scenic area in Huinan county, Jilin province, has been glazed with the natural beauty of soft rime.

Delicate rime on trees creates a spectacular sight, turning the area into a dreamy landscape.

Rime is a special type of frost — granular tufts of ice — that appears only when atmospheric conditions are right and water vapor meets cold air.
