Niagara From New York

Niagara From New York

For the first time in my life, I stepped onto New York State soil. This photo was taken a few minutes later, after a short adventure on a wrong turn.

My friend Rob and I both stopped for quite some time to photograph and take in the beauty of the Falls. The American Falls are what you see in this shot. With over 50% (some say upwards of 60%) of it’s flow restricted, one can only imagine the power of the falls if mankind hadn’t intervened.

Niagara Falls

As a Canadian, or even just a traveler, Niagara Falls is a must. While I was in Ontario in the summer of 2012, I had been told by many that it would be worth the trip outside of the city, and with my good fortune, I made a couple friends in a hostel and with a car I rented, we trekked out to Niagara.

This is my favourite photo I took while I was on the Maid of the Mist, the boat that takes you on a tour of the 3 waterfalls. Of them, two are pictured here, the smaller being Bridal Veil Falls on the right and the American Falls on the left, both of which are on the American side of the border. I’m a sucker for rainbows, so it’s no wonder I love this photo. The largest falls, and arguably the most famous, are called the Horseshoe Falls, for their shape, and they are on the Canadian side. It gets pretty misty down there, so I’ll post another photo of it from above, but I always like being in the thick of it. As a wise photographer once said, “If your pictures aren’t good enough, then you’re not close enough” – Robert Capa
