This series of photographs is result from observation of the ice surface on freshwater lakes. This study was conducted from the fall of 2020 to the end of the spring of 2021. During the winter period, the structure of the ice changes, and the surface of the lake looks different. Amazing patterns appear on the ice, then they disappear, and others appear. For filming, a drone was used, because in most cases the ice is loose and you cannot walk on it with a camera. The most expressive shots were obtained from a height of about 20 meters.
