Photo: Sculpted Ice And Snow Formations Leitenkammerklamm Wildgerlostal Salzburger Land Austria

Beautiful, magical ice and snow formations can be seen here around the sculpted sides of the Leitenkammerklamm, the waterfall in the Wildgerlostal, also known as the Wildgerlos Valley in Salzburger Land in the beautiful land of Austria.

The power of water is amazing - over time it can form caves and sculpt rocks into many different formations. Water can penetrate cracks then freeze to ice and cause more cracks and shapes. Here in this photo you can see how the water, ice and snow is also covering the rocks and the elements continue to shape the landscape.

Tourists can visit the Wildergerlos Valley, and take the path to see the beautiful Leitenkammerklamm waterfall with the amazing ice and snow formations on the sculpted rock escarpment. This area is unique due to the erosion of the water over thousands of years to form natural caves that are a worthwhile sight to anyone who can make the journey in the cold to see it.

This is also a place that is of interest to scientists due to what time and nature has done to this solid rock. ... continue below the picture...

... Scientists come here from all over the world to study this phenomenon.

This valley is the most western valley in Salzburger Land and although can be difficult to get to, due to the extreme temperatures, it is well worth seeing these formations in person, especially while they are still around, as what can seem to be the simple act of a drop of water falling on rock, can in fact change the landscape of solid rock over time.
