Throwing Hot Tea At -40°C Near the Arctic Circle During Sunset

Science tells us that if we throw boiling water at temperatures well below zero, we get an extraordinary cloud of ice crystals.

The Canadian photographer Michael Davies has decided to immortalize this wonderful effect in the best of ways: with his friend Markus traveled about 20km south of the Arctic Circle and has launched hot tea to the ambient temperature of -40°C.
