If you live somewhere that gets really cold you know how far beneath your warmest jacket and scarf the chill factor can creep. When Mother Nature unleashes a cold front, she often freezes everything in her path, creating the most incredible scenes.

As the coldest months of the year rapidly approach, here are some of the best photos of frozen things to get you in the mood for snow boots and shovels!

In order for water to freeze over it needs to be 39 degrees Fahrenheit. As the thermostat dips down, the top surface of the water is the first to feel the icy effects. This is why ice forms a sheet on the top layer of water, but if it’s not cold enough the ice is very thin and may break through if stepped on.

Frozen Water Fall 

This might be one of my favorite frozen images! You may not see many frozen waterfalls if you live somewhere like California. But in places that regularly receive icy winters frozen waterfalls are a well-known beauty, such as in Iceland, Scandinavia, and Siberia. The wondrous part is how they freeze mid-fall, keeping the unique shape of fast-falling water.

It might be a while before this truck gets back to work…

Frozen Chicago River 

Since the Chicago River is so large and is fed by many other bodies of water it takes a considerable amount of time, and chill, to make even 50% of the river freeze over each winter.
