Due to the polar vortex engulfing most of North America and Canada, the Niagara Falls froze partially. The frozen waterfall which is world-famous was absolutely beautiful to look at.

Frozen Niagara Falls is Beautiful

The moment was captured in the form of photographs and it defied the imagination. The deluge of water cascading down the cliff was almost frozen in time. Niagara Falls started forming icicles and soon enough it was in a near solid state. Of course, some of the pictures are not real and the photographers who caught them on camera are relatively unknown. 

The most realistic one has mist surrounding the image thereby ruining its credibility. The extremely cold weather conditions on the border areas between North America and Canada caused this phenomenon. The temperature was about minus two degrees below zero. And the harsh and inclement climate brought malaise along with it to many people who had to stay indoors due to the danger of frostbite. 

Earlier pictures of Niagara Falls in a solid state date from 1911 and 1890. There are people walking on top of it. The problem with the Internet is that many people post false images as a prank. This has happened in the case of the frozen Niagara Falls too. Whereas the fact of the matter is that it never actually froze completely. 

It is simply not possible for such a huge quantity of water falling from such a height to totally freeze. The Niagara Falls also partially solidified in 1850. The obvious markers that have influenced this strange occurrence include a changing climate due to mankind’s habit of interfering with Mother Nature.
