Niagara Falls Partially Does My Heart

So how 'bout this eastern weather lately...
just a little wackadoo?

It appears the "polar vortex" that slammed us last week did a number on Niagara Falls and partially froze its flow, giving Reuters photographer Aaron Harris a photo-op field day.

Although I'd be beyond thrilled to have the rare opportunity to photograph a phenomenon like this, I've gotta admit that it would super unnerving to skate around the edge of this beast with ice underfoot at every edge. Gads.

Not a good day for The Maid of the Mist boat ride under the falls, huh?

But these photos are just breathtaking.
What an incredible wonder.
This last photo spins me out hard.

Oh, Mother Nature—you are, most certainly, the boss.
You have definitely been keeping us on our toes lately, but what beauty you create.

Hats off to brave Aaron Harris for his mind-melting photos.
I'm sure this was a shoot to remember. 
Check out more photos of the partially frozen falls here

Have a spectacular week, sweet friends!

are the beautiful images of frozen Niagara Falls. I went there through niagara
tour from new york
. It’s highly entertaining and refreshing. You
should watch these falls especially in the afternoon; for you have a higher
chance to catch a spectacular rainbow. It’s located at the border of Ontario,
Canada & New York. The three waterfalls from largest to smallest are the
Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls.
