Ice Falls in Valganna, Italy

April 22, 2021


Photographer: Michela Meda
Summary Author: Michela Meda
The photo above shows the freezing of a small waterfall as observed
near Valganna (Varese), Italy, on February 15, 2021. Bitter cold
settled in during mid-February throughout most of Europe, ushered in by
northeast winds from western Siberia. As a result, nearly all water
surfaces froze solid. Note the complex basal structures under the
ice stalactites. These formations resulted from the splashing of
water drops. The ice sculptures derived from this process are often
quite complex as well as beautiful.
