Watery Wednesday: The falls at Niagara

The American and Canadian Falls at Niagara, Niagara Falls, New York. August 30, 2002.

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

This is my post for Watery Wednesday.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

This is one of the few pictures that I got of both the American (foreground) and the Canadian (background) falls at Niagara.  If you look closely you can even see The Maid of the Mist in the river hear the Canadian Falls.

This picture was taken in 2002 from the state park on the American side of the river.

    George: Nice capture of the falls, most of what you see are from the other side of the falls.

    The grandaddy of all falls! What a great perspective you’ve chosen to shoot from so that we can see where the water breaks into the falls. I’ve seen Niagra, but don’t remember this wonderful water color that you’ve captured. Wonderful photo with lots of movement and variety.
