A sparkling cascade of icicles

Saturday, 13 February 21

Icicles at frozen waterfall in Crows Nest Woods, HebdenBridge

My mind has been well and truly blown this afternoon by a natural spectacle in the woods.

The waterfall In Crow Nest Woods has turned into an incredible, sparkling cascade of icicles.

The sounds was incredible. Dripping and crackling, water trickling behind ice. How does water actually sound cold?

At the bottom of the waterfall were huge frozen droplets piling up. It looked just like the bubbles and froth at the bottom of an un-frozen waterfall but still and solid. Frozen in time.

There were all sorts of strange frozen formations.

Can you believe how much ice is on these twigs?

I am not sure if my photo's could ever capture the magic of seeing this with real eyes.

Lockdown limitations probably added to the pure novelty of this new spectacle but I felt like I'd just seen something that I would have traveled a long way to visit. It was very uplifting.

And maybe it's more magical because it's fleeting. Just a few degrees warmer and it will be gone! I'm glad we caught it, in all it's splendor!
