Striking footage taken in Cumbria shows how strong winds generated by Storm Helene were able to ‘reverse’ a waterfall.
The gorgeous footage was captured at Mallerstang Edge on September 18, and shows the wind blowing the water upwards; while a rainbow forms inside the waterfall.
Although an upside-down waterfall may sound like something from a fantasy landscape, the images of this stunning phenomenon are very real; captured during the peak of the violent storm.
US named Storm Helene – which brought 80mph winds to some parts of the UK – has since died down; having left power shortages and traffic disruptions in its wake.
Those who have watched the footage have been left mesmerized by the way the water cascades upwards; appearing to defy the everyday laws of nature.
