It’s been incredibly cold in the USA over the last two weeks and it will be even colder in the coming weeks. The bitter temperatures can be really difficult to deal with. Nature can be cruel but at the same time, it can also be incredibly beautiful, as these images of a frozen Niagara Falls will show you.
NIAGARA FALLS – THE FROZEN BEAUTY
Yes! The Niagara Falls has frozen. This gives you an idea of exactly how freezing cold it is.
The Niagara Falls is spectacularly beautiful at the best of times but now it has frozen due to extreme cold weather. It looks even more majestic now.
Think of the tons of water that cascade down over the Niagara Falls. And now, think of that water just stopping, mid-flight, with huge sheets of ice forming elaborate patterns and sculptures. Completely mesmerizing!
It is an astonishing sight and while it is not easy to see – there is snow everywhere – the Falls is spectacular.
The Niagara Falls has the highest flow rate out of all the waterfalls in America with a drop of over 50 metres. They’re also a source of hydroelectric power and provide a large amount of power in New York state. It’s lucky that only parts of the Niagara Falls has frozen or there could be many blackouts. For now, it’s a whiteout and an incredibly beautiful one.
ETHEREAL WINTER WONDERLAND
People are calling this an ‘Ethereal Winter Wonderland’ and it really does look like a scene from a fairy tale or fantasy movie.
The area is an icy spectacle and believe it or not, there are still tons of tourists. They’re all dressed in super thick coats with excellent walking shoes and one can hear the thick snow crunch under their feet as they walk.
Of course, you first need to get to Niagara and there is a lot of ice and snow so be careful. And in the meantime, you can just enjoy the view of the photographs again. 😉
The Niagara Falls have frozen and these photographs are truly breathtaking. If you know anyone else who loves nature will be fascinated by these photographs of Niagara Falls iced over, please share this article.
