Is that Anna, Sven and Kristoff from Frozen? No it's actually a photo of people who live in the European steppe which stretches through Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine, Russia and China. With temperatures of minus 30°C, winters in the Eurasian steppe can be brutal. But life doesn't stop, and local people move from one village to another with a sledge, crossing icy rivers and lakes. You can see why this photo by Alessandra Meniconzi is called Frozen Land.

Joseph Cheires took this photo called Gray Whale Plays Pushing Tourists. He says: "At the end of the gray whale season, I was told about a gray whale that, for the last three years, used to play with the boats, pushing them gently. So we went back the year after and incredibly the gray whale appeared and this shot is the result."
