Frozen in time


Contributor GeogeMarcu used a drone to aerially film a comparatively rare phenomenon - a frozen Danube River in Romania, near its mouth on the Black Sea.  The Danube is Europe's second-longest river (after Russia's Volga River) and in some respects its most important.  It provides access to the ocean (through the Black and Mediterranean Seas) to Austria, Hungary, and Serbia, which would otherwise be completely landlocked.  The freezing of the river to the extent that transport ships are trapped is quite rare.
