Defying gravity

Waterfall in Drygalski Fjord, South Georgia

We all know, when you drop something, it will fall to the ground. Something with Newton and an apple. However, this waterfall defied gravity. It ended somewhere, not because the water evaporated, but because the water went back up…  Now, this is not possible, unless there is a different force in play of course… In this case the wind was strong enough to blow the water back up.

But it was a really strange sight, to see a waterfall go up…

Oh, and already a question for my next blog: What is the southernmost breeding bird?
