There’s absolutely no denying fact that photos are mightier than words and can express a thousand emotions at the same time which is a pretty difficult task. At one fell swoop, they capture some of the best, happiest and most wonderful moments and make them immortal as whenever we see the pictures, all our memories get refreshed and we still feel to be at the same place, no matter how many years there have been since we clicked those pictures!

With a smartphone at our disposal, we all have the capability to become photographers and this has resulted in huge increase in the number of pictures clicked every day. And while capturing our usual moments, we tend to click some photos which are quite different, rare and unique in their own sense.

Today we are going to show you some photographs of rare things or phenomena that happen once in a lifetime!

1 Snow donuts

We all are familiar with snowballs but snow donuts are something rare. For the formation of snow donuts, perfect temperature conditions are required and either snow falls or it is blown by wind. More snow gets added to the structure and slowly it takes the shape of a snowball but in this instance, the middle part gets collapsed and it gets the donut shape. These snow donuts can be maximum 26 inches (66 cm) high.

How many times have we seen such a beautiful scene in which all the surroundings are snow-laden and a biker is ready to march ahead on the snowy road? For some it may be just a long and snowy road with trees on each side but for few, it may have a philosophical value and we leave it on the individuals to figure out. By the way, this road separates Norway and Sweden.
