A number of meteorological elements came together late last week in the Hungarian town of Pilis — about 30 miles southeast of Budapest — to create some pretty incredible crystalline structures.

According to a translated post from the Hungarian Meteorological Service, here’s what happened:

The air at the surface was just above freezing and unsaturated. But a temperature inversion, just above the surface, created an area that was just below freezing and totally saturated. This type of environment is conducive for the development of a narrow band of freezing fog.

Couple the riming, associated with freeing fog, and the wind and some pretty awesome ice deposits occurred.

Check out the images below.
