Incredible pictures show Niagara Falls partially frozen as chilly temperatures continue to bring snow and ice across the US-Canada border.

Similar images emerged last year when the falls, which usually see the passage of 567,811 liters per second, partially froze twice in a few weeks as temperatures fell to a record-breaking low.

Pictures taken this year show some parts of the falls and surrounding areas covered in sheets of ice.
