Optical Illusion Sees Flowing Water Appear Completely Frozen

An Italian filmmaker has captured some stunning footage of an active water flow looking like an ice stalactite.

Dario Bonzi, 28, from Brescia, spotted the extremely rare natural phenomenon when he was on an outing in Val Camonica, a large valley in the central Alps.

The video shows the jet coming out a public water tap looking as still and glimmering as ice.

However, when Dario moves his hand through it, you can see stream breaking and flowing over his fingers.
