Delicate filigrees of rime cover trees on Sifang Mountain in Tonghua city, Northeast China's Jilin province on Nov 30 – creating a startling contrast between the pristine white of the leaves and the piercing blue sky. In autumn and winter, mist condenses in the form of frost which engulfs the surrounding branches when it's hyper cold, creating the natural phenomenon. [Photo provided to gojilin.gov.cn]


With the golden sun rising from the horizon, the mountain becomes a fairy tale world wrapped in silver. Here, alpine grasslands and wetlands form a snowy and foggy microclimate in winter, where the probability of icy rime is particularly high. [Photo provided to gojilin.gov.cn]
