Frozen Kolvitsa waterfall in winter

Yesterday my mate Alexandra took me to Kolvitsa to see one of local natural attractions, the waterfall on the Kolvitsa river. Although I am at a bit of a loss as to the point of dragging one’s ass through two miles of snow to see some bubbling water framed by ice, I am, after all, in the tourism business, so I put up but minimal resistance and ended up seeing the views I’m about to share. Here:

Location: 27-28km east from Kandalaksha along the south edge of the Kola peninsula, about a mile up the Kolvitsa river from the village of the same name.
