Have you heard about Japanese "snow monsters"?

 

Japanese trees covered in snow and rime ice are otherwise known as "snow monsters". They make winter landscape in mountainous areas of northern Japan look mysterious and unusual. Here are some pictures of these "monsters".

Great pictures!

However, such "snow monsters" are not at all particular to Japan. You'll see them any place with enough snow, enough wind, and sparse tree vegetation. This is more or less "standard winter landscape" in Norway from about fifteen hundred feet above sea level and upwards. ... Yet, you rarely see Norwegians make such nice picture collections of the snow monsters!
