Hell Hasn’t Frozen Over Yet, But Niagara Falls Sure Has After Temperatures Dropped Rapidly

There’s nothing more spectacular than watching the water come gushing over the cliff in Niagara Falls. Its beauty is so hypnotizing that thousands of honeymooners and vacationers love to visit this impressive landmark straddled between the Canadian and U.S. border. But what happens when the water stops flowing? Igor Illyutkin from Toronto, in Ontario, Canada took these snaps that prove that winter in Niagara is a bit like winter in The Chronicles of Narnia.

Straight Out Of Narnia

It looks like a scene from the children’s fantasy books-turned-films, The Chronicles Of Narnia. But this isn’t the work of the villainous White Witch. It’s Mother Nature’s chilly weather that’s frozen the three waterfalls of Niagara.

It’s Sublime

It’s difficult to imagine this actually being a waterfall when it looks more like corals made of ice. During peak daytime hours, over six million cubic feet of water goes over the Falls every minute.

Take A Peek

It’s as if you’re looking towards Niagara Falls from the White Witch’s Castle. But Niagara Falls formed when glaciers at the end of the last Ice Age receded, creating the Great Lakes and a water path towards Niagara.

It’s A Power Source

Niagara Falls is also a source of hydroelectric power. The Robert Moses Niagara Hydroelectric Power Station in Lewiston, New York, is able to create a low-cost renewable power source from the rushing water.
