The phenomenon occurs when cold and dry weather causes the water to freeze and still remain completely transparent, in this case, allowing the duo to see even the bottom of the lake. In the images, we see translucent and crystalline ice, marked only by the blades of ice skates.

To Reuters news agency, Mehl explained that the condition usually lasts only a week: “And since it took ten years, you know, maybe more, for these conditions to present themselves this year, I think it might take another decade before we can see something like this again,” he said.

The couple shared videos of them skating on the ice on their social media, and the images of the frozen water in a bluish-green hue, with rocks and sand perfectly visible beneath the skates, captivated internet users.
