If you’re looking for the perfect place to chill out and don’t mind feeling fresh, this place has got you covered. While the Sarnia Yacht Club might be the perfect place for summer break, it also has its advantages in winter. Not only does it look like the ideal winter wonderland, but it also provides these frozen benches so that you can sit down and chill out. And we mean literally chill out.
Okay, this club probably didn’t come equipped with frozen benches, and probably, on a sunny day, you’d be able to enjoy a nice view of the ocean. However, when winter comes, no one or nothing is free from its cold clutches. Even the bench is frozen in its path.
Frozen Blade of Grass
Nature has that incredible talent of taking some of the most ordinary things and making them look magical – like they are from some other world. Take, for example, this photo which simply shows a blade of grass and frozen water. And yet, it looks other-worldly. In fact, you would expect to find this in another galaxy.
The ice around the blade of grass forms strange bubbles – giving it the look of insect eggs (which are usually far from looking fantastic). There is beauty to this captured piece of nature, with the blade of grass frozen in this moment of time.
Did you know Alaska has beaches? According to this image, apparently, it does, as this photo was captured on an Alaskan beach. And unsurprisingly, the beach is frozen, which is just something that you expect from a beach in Alaska. What you don’t expect is what has been frozen in the center of this picture – bubbles.
Yes, that’s right, bubbles. That is the last thing you’d think could be frozen. In fact, frozen bubbles seem like a huge contradiction or breaking of the laws of nature, but here is proof that even the laws of nature have exceptions. It's one of the more beautiful sights.
Now, when you think of a winter wonderland, this image comes to mind. A world covered in soft, milk-white, fluffy snow and the morning dew, frozen, forming delicate crystals of ice. And while such a description conjures up ideas of fantasy and imagination, this picture is proof that there are such things as a winter wonderland.
What we see here is a tree with its tiny seeds and twigs frozen in time. While they may be frozen seeds and twigs, they actually look like Christmas decorations giving us the impression of a truly white Christmas. Who knows, perhaps frozen decorations will become a thing in the future?
A Throwback From the Past
Sometimes, the most interesting things have been preserved in ice. This photo was taken on October 8, 2020, in Sion in, Switzerland. In the photo, we see Pierre Yves Nicod holding a very old shoe. It is certainly nothing anyone would have worn in the last 100 years. Nicod is the curator of the archaeological department of the history museum.
Working with archaeological evidence from the Canton on Valais is one of the curator’s jobs. As we see from this photo, he is holding a shoe that dates to the 17th century. That is incredibly old, but the ice does a great job of preserving such archaeological evidence so professionals such as Nicod can dig deeper into the past.
