Winter 2022 AR Showcase

Posted in

Winter is here, at least in the Northern Hemipshere, so to celebrate the season, we asked to see your best winter AR photos! We know it isn’t winter everywhere right now, and that many parts of the world don’t get a traditional winter, so we wanted to see your own personal version of winter.

Unedited Images

The below AR images have not been edited in any way.

‘Exciting!’ by nana15AR, Hiroshima City, Japan.

‘I can’t stop being excited about Christmas decorations and music.’

‘Gliding glaciers’ by, Territory of Treaty No.8, Alberta, Canada.

‘Have you ever seen something on ice that could stand completely still? Not even ice sits on itself completely still. A glacier is a long-lasting body of dense ice that is always moving under its own weight. How’s this possible? Ice behaves like the brittle solid we know until it reaches 50 m deep. These top 50 m (160 ft) are rigid because they are under low pressure. Lower than that, the layers of ice are so pressed together that they slide onto each other in a lot of directions. So the inner glacier behaves more like a viscous fluid instead of a solid. Now you know!’

‘Morning dip foiled!’ by Spindiana, Brackley, UK.
