Burj Al Arab

Ice formations in the cave "Kőlyuk" in the Bükk mountains, Hungary.

Photo was taken using my old Olympus C2500L digital camera, long exposure time, no flash.

This ice formation somehow looks very much like the iconic building of Dubai, Burj Al Arab.

Usually winters are not too cold in Hungary, rarely getting temperatures below zero in the afternoons. Sometimes however for short periods extreme colds may settle in here for a few weeks which may be ideal for getting such ice formations in these water-rich limestone mountains.
