    A woman takes a photo at the Horseshoe Falls in Niagara Falls, Ontario, on 27 January 2021.

    As long as Niagara continues to fall, people will be charmed by the breath-taking views at this popular cross-border tourist destination. It is particularly beautiful in winter. Just have a look!

    The effect of a frozen waterfall is created when splashes of water turn into ice right in the air. Besides, technically the falls never freeze because there's such a mass of water moving at such a speed that the perpetual motion of the cascade prevents the Falls from freezing totally.

    Coated in ice, the Falls attracts masses of tourists who are eager to take memorable pictures in front of the "frozen giant".
