When one lives about an hour’s drive from Niagara Falls, one tends to end up visiting the place quite a lot, with extra visits whenever one has guests from out of town.

The first time I saw the falls with adult eyes, I was expecting to be a bit underwhelmed: as has been frequently observed by others, the world’s greatest wonders are prone to appear so frequently in books and films etc that it is easy to expect them to be bigger and more impressive than they really are. Despite all that, Niagara Falls is still jaw-droppingly impressive and remains so, no matter how many times I visit.

This shot of the American Falls was taken from the US side of the river, whilst taking a day trip out of the country as part of getting PR. Despite it being May, there was still some snow on the ground – in indication of how fierce the winter had been.

  1. This is amazing! The water almost looks like clouds.
    Did you use a slower shutter speed to get this effect?
