As a weather photographer, Marko Korosec has seen some serious climate conditions. Never one to shy away from getting the image he wants, it was a no-brainer when he got the opportunity to climb Mount Javornik, part of a mountain range in eastern Slovenia's ski center. And being a weather photographer, he chose to climb it during a long period of wind, snow and ice. The trees and lookout towers were completely cased in hard layers of rime ice, a type of ice formed by freezing fog during high winds. With ice spikes over three feet long, the resulting images are intensely other-wordly and beautiful.
