CNN PRODUCER NOTE These surreal-looking holes are actually ice circles Cat Connor explained. She photographed them on December 7 at Klondike Lake, which is located in Big Pine, California. Ice circles are a natural occurring phenomenon which happens in slow moving water in cold climates. 'The layering is made up of liquid below, clear and solid ice above, slush or frozen slush on top of the ice, and snow on top of the slush,' she explained. She was inspired to send the photo because of how uniqued it looked. 'It is a beautiful and unusual sight that most people don't get to see.'
