The whole thing about waterfalls is that they are supposed to, uh, fall. This waterfall, located in England’s Derbyshire Peak District, is even called the Kinder Downfall, implying a certain direction of the water’s flow. Typically, the 30-meter waterfall is happy to follow these specifications. However, there were some incredibly strong winds in the region recently, and, well, this happened:
That’s right. The wind was so strong that it actually swept the falling water back up the rocks. The updraft made it look like the waterfall was pouring the other way, with the droplets of water rising up towards the sky.
As surreal as it was, it of course was a temporary phenomenon, and the waterfall soon returned to its usual downward motion. But we’re glad this YouTuber was there to capture the magic. So weird!
