One photographer said: ” Here ice looks like a vertical column, which reminds you of the Romanesque style, but it is entirely everything out of ice. The height is 30 meters. It is absolutely stunning. Tourists and climbers all around the world come here to experience their own power. In this places it is very difficult to photograph. You need a special flash and other equipment, so without the preparation there is no hope for good picture. Two years ago there was an accident, one climber fell almost from the height of the tenth floor. But now he is again on those frozen waterfalls testing his strength.”
