These beautiful ice formations are formed during winter in the partially frozen waterfall of the Johnston Creek, which is part of the Johnston Canyon. This picture shows part of the Lower Falls waterfall flowing down towards the pool of water at the bottom but then the other part frozen in to ice formations as it is the middle of winter and the weather is very cold.

Even though a waterfall is a fast moving body of water, as demonstrated here part of this water can freeze and due to the pure nature of the water and the untouched surroundings the ice forms into beautiful and unique ice formations. The water here is so pure and cold that it has a blue sheen that can be seen in this picture and from this view one can see the mist rising up from the churning water as it hits the pool at the base.

Johnston Creek and the waterfalls are a tributary of the Bow River in Alberta and originates in the glacial valleys of Banff National Park. As it comes straight from glacial water the water in these falls is always cold, no matter what time of the year it may be. It is also part of Banff National Park, which is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks UNESCO World Heritage Site.
