Mini Frozen Waterfall

Frozen penstock leakage on the Kananaskis River, AB (Canada), Feb. 24, 2012

In my last post I showed you some wonderful ice formations growing from the top of a leaky wooden penstock (pipe).  Here’s a view of the beautiful frozen waterfall created by the leakage from the bottom of the penstock, taken by MSc student Stefan Emmer.
