Big Freeze

The arctic vortex is slowly behind us and we won’t have to where multiple layers of coats anymore. In two month time I’ll probably start photographing first spring flowers, it is almost around the corner.

Polar Vortex turns Niagara Falls into a frozen wonderland

Published on Jan 9, 2014, originally

Winter’s deep freeze sure can wreak havoc on travel plans but at least it makes for some jaw-dropping photography.

What you’re looking at is Niagara Falls encased in ice. You can see the Falls, still roaring in the back, but pretty much everything else near the Canada-US border has slowed down to a glacial pace.

The photo comes courtesy of Google Earth Pics who tweeted out the photo on Tuesday just as much of North America was contending with the fallout of a polar vortex, a system of tundra-like cold air that descended on the area to bring abnormally cold weather.

But while many may be bitter about the sub-zero temperatures, the timing couldn’t be more perfect for the area. Niagara Falls is currently in the midst of its Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights, which embraces the cold and paints the waterfall and the surrounding area in a colourful winter wonderland. Travellers interested in seeing the frozen Falls at the festival can do so until Jan. 31, assuming you don’t turn into a human icicle first.
