Niagara Falls freezes over, produces the most breathtaking scenery

Earlier this week, heavy snowfall continued to blanket the Midwest and Northeast of North America, with places like Toronto experiencing temperatures as low as -24C.

It’s so cold that even parts of Niagara Falls have frozen over, resulting in the most mesmerising views around.

The sun came out for only 15 minutes. Just to make this experience even more memorable I guess. I froze my butt off with -25 Celcius ? #winter #waterfalls #cold #unforgettable #canada? #businesstrip #bookingcom

And while most people tend to stay indoors during the winter, a lot actually went out to the world-famous tourist spot just to take photos.

“I’ve always wanted a frozen winter shot here, so of course while planning a weekend in Toronto I had to wish for some snow to make a bus ride down there worth it,” said photographer Scott Heaney.

“What I didn’t plan on was that my wish would turn into arctic temperatures and a winter storm that even Canadians seemed fazed by.

“But regardless of the absurd cold, I don’t think there’s any question that seeing the falls like this was absolutely worth it. I’d say you can make a pretty strong case that winter is the most beautiful time to visit Niagara.”

In an interview with CNN, tourist Emma Grafham described the scene as like being in Elsa’s castle in the Pixar film Frozen.

“There was even this set of stairs that were placed just outside the look-on spot and they had so much ice on them, it looked like Elsa had just cast her arm out and summoned up some stairs like she does in the movie.”

First time I’ve gone to Niagara Falls in the winter. We got hit by a pretty gnarly storm while there, which resulted in me spending way too much money at the casino bar…. Let’s be honest though, that probably would have happened either way. ??
