summer sky over the falls

taken from the same vantage point as a previous release, ‘fire in the sky’, this was captured in early july ’18 and also features the 3 waterfalls that make up the whole of niagara falls: american falls, bridal veil falls and horseshoe falls. a glorious summer evening with wonderful colours in the sky provided yet another magical moment in this part of the world…

fire in the sky

a late spring shot of the three sets of falls at niagara falls, ontario and new york. the american falls and bridal veil falls are entirely on the american side in new york state and are separated by luna island. they are at the left of the frame and run towards the centre. horseshoe falls are customarily thought of as being on the canadian side; however, that is true for about 2/3, as the remaining 1/3 is in the usa. horseshoe falls and their american counterparts are separated by goat island. collectively, they are known as niagara falls and here they are in the evening as the sun is setting and reflecting its light off of clouds above.

flying in the mist

my disdain for winter aside, here is a lovely morning shot of the niagara river as it makes its way towards horseshoe falls at niagara falls, ontario. visible, are a number of prominent structures on the canadian side including the niagara skywheel (ferris wheel), some hotels, table rock and the skylon tower. talk about beautiful light and colour in the sky… also notice all the birds flying in the mist created by the powerful falls.

Mist Rising

a trip to niagara falls was always a treat – i would usually hit it a couple of times a year. now of course, i am living in st. catharines, ontario and am a mere 15 minute drive to the falls anytime i like… this was photographed in august of summer 2015 on a fireworks display night. i usually got there about 2 hours before the show and hoped for a beautiful sky and light over the falls. this night did not disappoint!
