‘Frozen’ technicolor Niagara Falls lit up in the night

The endless winter has ‘frozen’ over Niagara Falls in record-breaking sub-zero temperatures. Every evening beginning at dusk, the Falls are lit with rainbow-colored lights. Take a look at the colorful winter wonderland captured by Reuters photographer Mark Blinch.

But as this Washington Post blog points out, “those pretty pictures show water vapor crystallizing around the falls,” hiding the water flowing behind, giving the appearance they were frozen. Around the corner water continued to flow despite the rumors.

An earlier version of this post also indicated that the falls were frozen. It has since been corrected.
