Stunning drone footage showcases the frost patterns that resemble flowers on a frozen lake in northwestern China.

The incredible video was filmed in Gongliu County in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region on January 8.

Frost flowers are the exquisite patterns curling into "petals" that resemble flowers on thin layers of ice. They are formed when thin layers of ice are extruded from long-stemmed plants in autumn or early winter.
