Frozen waterfall creates stunning scenes in China pic.twitter.com/L1SMr2Olz1— RTÉ News (@rtenews) January 7, 2019
A recent cold wave has brought some stunning winter scenery to Taihang Mountain's canyon region in north China's Shanxi Province, with cascading ice sheets producing a spectacular frozen landscape.
In the canyon in Lingchuan County, the huge ice sheets descending over the waterfalls and silver thaw over the spring in various shapes have created a winter wonderland.
Due to the gradual drop in temperatures in recent days, water oozing out from the sandstone has formed the stunning ice cascade.
The silver thaw is a coating of ice, which is formed when extremely cold water droplets freeze almost instantly on a cold surface.
