Venice, do you wanna build a snowman? Sadly – or not sadly, depending on how you love/hate cold weather – this is not the work of nature, but the work of some cool photo manipulation. Photographer and art director Robert Jahns, known on Instagram as nois7, turned the lagoon city into a winter wonderland with his amazing photo editing skills.

To create the images, he used photos taken by other photographers – like Luis Manuel’s shot of Venice’s Piazza San Marco and Daniel Kordan’s shot of Russia’s Lake Bakail – and merged them together.

Sorry ice skaters, I guess you’ll just have to wait until global warming kicks in and brings in the new ice age to Venice’s famous canals.
