Trees in Karamay in Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region were all covered with rime from Jan 16 to 19, making the whole city a beautiful frozen fairy tale world.

Rime takes its shape when warm wet air meets the weak cool air near the ground when the temperature drops in the night. The radiation fog and water in the air condense on trees and form the beautiful rime.

The rime disappears in strong sunshine. So people need to get up early to appreciate its beauty.

The red lanterns and white rime on the trees perfectly match one another and well decorate the winter days in Karamay. [Photo/]
