An extremely rare phenomenon call flash freeze where the lake freezes overnight due to extreme temperature. I was there the morning when it was partially frozen, back again for sunset the same day when it's fully frozen and few days later when it's safe enough to skate on.

On the foreground, there are pieces of ice flower which cause by moisture that build up as it freezes over on an extremely cold temperature.

I left my career as an engineer in April 2014 to pursue my passion in travel and photography. I've started a photography company called The Wicked Hunt. Since then I've spent 2 months driving through Java Island, Bali and Lombok, Indonesia. Then continued with 4 months trip around Australia. On the 16th of January I will start a new chapter in Canada. My mission is to travel the world, see different culture and background, capture the moment, then share and hopefully help to inspire other people to travel. I strongly believe that travel help to open people's mind and become more empathetic t
