Ice Storm   

The following photographs, by Jean-Pierre Scherrer of Geneva, Switzerland, were taken in January of 2008 at Versoix at Lake Leman, Switzerland.  Very cold conditions combined with strong winds resulted in the ice-encrusted landscape shown in the photographs.  Scherrer stated: "After a conjunction of intense cold (-8 to -12 Centigrade; 17.6 to 10.4 Fahrenheit), plus very strong winds blowing at over 100kmh (70 mph), the waves became so harsh that they passed over the dikes and the water droplets immediately froze on everything they touched!"
