This is the moment an iconic giant cross on top of an Italian mountain is transformed into a spectacular ice sculpture after freezing weather grips the area.
A hiker films the Croce del Pratomagno covered from top to bottom in ice after snow had engulfed the enormous cross.
The monument stands at 1592m marking the highest peak of the Pratomagno mountain range, which lies to north-west of Arezzo in Tuscany.
Every inch of the enormous cross, erected in 1928, is totally covered in ice.
An unidentified hiker walks around and under the monument revealing its stunning new transformation.
The large iron cross is usually visible from a great distance but the icy windy weather means it can only been seen from just a few feet away.
