Voyage into the Unknown?

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 12 October 2017 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

Watching the Hornblower navigate through the gorge and approach ever so closer to the Horseshoe Falls to experience the thrill of the thundering roar, awesome power and soaking mist of the Falls.

I was at a safe and dry distance, about 170 feet above them.

I loved the surface of the water and the "wall of mist" they were nearing.

There is always someone who likes to go further. Who loves to feel the adrenaline. Who likes to test the limits ... until the day when something goes wrong.

It's a photograph with a great visual impact, but I do not know if I would make that boat trip.
