Freezing temperatures around the globe have resulted in a social media challenge that sees people combining boiling water and cold air to incredible results.
The trend, referred to as the “Dubak” challenge, which is Russian slang for cold, first started in North America during the recent polar vortex.
As the cold travelled to other parts of the world, so did the challenge.
The photos are created by throwing boiling water into the freezing cold air.
Once the water hits the air, it instantly condenses, resulting in the stunning images.
In parts of eastern Russia, temperatures recently reached -40F (-40C).
