You would be forgiven for thinking these stunning vistas lay deep in the heart of Antarctica.
But they are, in fact, what has become of the European landscape as temperatures plummet to nearly -40C - the coldest snap in decades.
Rivers, lakes, beaches and even seas have been iced over by a Siberian freeze, creating some incredible sights, but also more tales of tragedy.
But in southern Kosovo, nine people were killed when an avalanche hit the village of Restelica, officials said on Sunday, adding to more than 500 killed in snow and bitter cold across the Continent in the past two weeks.
In Poland, the interior ministry said 20 people had died in the past 24 hours because of the freezing weather, bringing the toll there so far this year to at least 100.

Boy, that Global Warming is really something.
-40 is that magic number where degrees C = degrees F
Don’t worry, I’m sure this will be blamed on the U.S. and the 0bama Administration will find a way that we’ll pay for any of the damages of the bitter, global-warming induced, cold weather.
That looks brutally cold over there.
Gees I hate cold weather!
So much for global warming, though it does help to prevent you from freezing your a$$ off during those brutally cold winters.
I guess you didn't get the memo. when things started cooling off they changed it to "Climate Change" - which allows them to say that ANY change in the weather is a result of made-made CO2 emissions.
It's ALL Southern Europe.
40 below is about the same whether C or F.
That's some extraordinarily cold weather under a global warming scenario.
“I guess you didn’t get the memo. when things started cooling off they changed it to “Climate Change” - which allows them to say that ANY change in the weather is a result of made-made CO2 emissions.”
I guess you “didn’t get the memo” that that is a bunch of the deepest horseradish.
The warmest alarmists can try to spin all they please, but the entire pitch revolving around “CO2 is evil” is about warming. If the Earth is cooling, that is absolutely a signal that CO2 is not NEARLY the problem it was portrayed to be.
Myself, I’m figuring on at least 40 years of cooling from here, based on the solar cycles. How tragic for algore and the rest of his posse...
Ssshhhhh! Play along! They’re watching!
Globule warming is so passé. The phrase is now “climate change”. This covers it all. If the temperature goes higher then normal ... climate change. Temperatures go below normal ... climate change. Temperature deviates beyond the norm ... climate change.
Climate change phrased correctly in the best “screaming” headlines is a moneymaker.
Proof positive that God has a sense of humor.
