ice blocksA beautiful ice formation is seen at Bohai Bay in northeast China’s Liaoning Province. Ice blocks are scattered along the bay and have been sculpted by the elements into various fantastical shapes.

A local fisherman who has been fishing in the area for more than 20 years, said it’s the first time he seen such large clusters of ice blocks. The local Sea Office said this past winter was the coldest in years, and many ice blocks were transported by the waves to the sea bank. Rising temperature have melted the blocks into strange shapes.
