It’s no secret that Buffalo, New York can get cold. In the winter months, pounding snow and below freezing temperatures make the city on the Canadian border a tough place to live. But, in the summer, the city and its surrounding area is beautiful, and the tourism industry comes alive as thousands of travelers visit Niagara Falls each day. But as photographer Adam Klekotka recently showed Resource Travel, maybe visitors shouldn’t overlook the beauty of Niagara Falls in the winter.
Klekotka visited Niagara Falls on January 6th, 2018 with the ‘Journey Behind the Falls’ tour. The high temperature that Saturday was a balmy 4°F (-15°C) with the low a nice and crisp -3 °F (-19°C). The frozen temperatures made the surrounding landscapes awash in massive icicles that had formed from the mist of the 167 foot waterfall. Klekotka, fighting off the harsh conditions, began aiming his camera and was shocked at the way that the photos resembled a what a scene on another planet might look like in a Sci-Fi movie. And the photos once again prove that some of the best times to visit famous natural wonders is in the winter.
