In China, rimes, frozen water droplet formations, used to be a winter attraction exclusively seen in Jilin Province. But along with climate change in recent years, this beautiful ice coating on trees can be seen in many tourism sites around China. We brave temperature drops to from Anhui Province to Jilin Province for picture perfect moments caputured by photography.

In the Jiuhua Mountain scenic area in southern Anhui Province, the unexpected temperature drop and rain in recent days has turned the pine forest into an ocean of snow crystals. Usually soft rime forms near rivers, where the frost is formed by direct deposition from water vapour to solid ice. But what makes Jiuhuashan rime special is that there's no running water in the mountainous area, the feathery and milky ice coating is formed because of the rain mist and light wind.
