Photographing the Falls
Whew - for a four day vacation, it's taking me quite a while to tell all about it. Our two days in Canada were lots of fun. We did all the Tourist things - Maid of the Mist (the boat that takes you right under the falls), Journey Behind the Falls, and a cool multi-sensory movie-in-the-round where it rained and snowed and the ground shook as we felt like we were actually going over the falls and of course the IMAX and shrine to those who tried to go over by barrel. They light the falls up every night from 9 -10 pm which is quite lovely. We even got to see a rainbow from our bedroom window.
Unfortunately it rained on Fireworks night, and while they still put on a show, I was unable to photograph it. As we left Ontario, I studied our map and realized there was a lighthouse on the New York side in Fort Niagara, so we took a detour to see that. Their information people told us of an even better lighthouse, Thirty Mile Lighthouse, so we we went another 30 miles east and saw that one which was cool! So many lighthouses to still find! Keeps us traveling, photographing and staying happy! Happy shooting, friends!
