Natural ice sculptures, Lake Geneva

No self-respecting photographer could pass up the chance to grab pictures of the results of an “ice storm” around Lake Geneva, for natural events like this do not happen very often. If you think some parts of the shapes resemble human or animal figures (not including the two men in dark overcoats, who ARE human), then it is just coincidence, because the sculptures were made like this:
A low pressure storm over the Lake whips up waves and spray, and 90km/h gusts of wind send it flying over anything stationed in its way.
At the same time, temperatures fall to -13˚ Celsius.
The water instantly freezes on poles and wires and the bank of the Lake itself, and layer after layer of ice builds up strange shapes that look as though Nature has been trying its hand at ice sculptures. It makes a lively but cold episode of our photo game
