This frozen waterfall picture was taken during a cold winter day and shows a scene of beautiful and interesting shapes frozen in time. The viewer can see the icicles hanging off the ledges, the droplets frozen on top of the once flowing water and the ice turning from white at the top to a vibrant blue towards the bottom. These frozen falls are part of the Lower Falls of the Johnston Creek during winter in the Johnston Canyon in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, Alberta.
It is unusual to see falls frozen in this way as flowing water is much harder to freeze than water that is still; it would have to be really cold for water to freeze like this and form such beautiful ice and snow formations. The unique design of each one in this scene is partly what makes the picture so interesting as each formation is alike yet also completely unique and is an example of what shapes can be found in nature.
The Lower Falls of the Johnston Creek are part of Banff National Park, which in itself is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks UNESCO World Heritage Site.
