Here’s a magical view of “frost flowers” blooming over the surface of the Arctic Ocean. Frost flowers form when newly formed ice “sublimates,” or changes directly from a solid to a gas without going through the liquid stage in subzero air temperature (-22C or -7.6F).

It is as beautiful as it is rare.  A frost flower is created on autumn or early winter mornings when ice in extremely thin layers is pushed out from the stems of plants or occasionally wood. This extrusion creates wonderful patterns which curl and fold into gorgeous frozen petioles giving this phenomenon both its name and its appearance.
