Frozen waterfalls - in the kingdom of the Snow Queen

23 January 2014

The Polar Vortex that froze Niagara Falls in the United States and Canada made much news in the first week of January. It was a cold start to the year and brought some of the coldest winters to many parts of the northern hemisphere, even as the southern hemisphere experienced a blazing summer. While snow and ice are commonly seen on the Niagara Falls, it is not always that the waterfall completely freezes over. On the other hand, frozen waterfalls are a common feature of winter landscapes in Iceland, Scandinavia, Siberia and the northerly reaches of Zanskar in Ladakh.

Enjoy this gallery of exquisitely picturesque winter waterfalls from the world over.
