A bus running along the bank of the Songhua River as it's covered in massive scale of rime ice on Dec. 14, 2018.

Rime ice is a natural phenomenon that occurs every year between January and February. It's a result of water vapor rising up from the warm Songhua River to meet the cold −20 °C (−4 °F) night air, which causes the crystallisation of water vapor on the trees.
