Weather-chasing photographer Marko Korošec spends his time shooting tornadoes, lightning and severe storms across the globe. But his latest work took him to Slovenia's Mount Javornik, the site of a popular ski center. What he found is difficult to put into words - a series of stunningly beautiful ice formations of spikes, frozen trees and lookout towers completely covered with rime ice.
When Marko Korošec got the opportunity to climb Mount Javornik he didn’t hesitate to take it. The monumental elevation is part of a mountain range in eastern Slovenia and the location of a popular ski center. What he discovered after climbing for 10 days and surviving strong Bora winds is totally surreal and stunning, and it was well worth the effort.
Korošec’s photos show frozen trees, a lookout tower, freezing fog and an icy terrain fully encased in hard layers of rime ice and entirely created by nature. The talented photographer said that some of the ice spikes coming off the tower could reach well over 3-feet long.
