Niagara Falls (Seen from the American Side)

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 28 November 2017 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

View of American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls (in the foreground) and Horseshoe Falls (in the background), the three falls that make up Niagara Falls. This view is taken from the American side of the Falls from Prospect Point Observation Tower, which is just east of American Falls.

The people to the left of American Falls help give a sense of scale. You can also see stairs at the bottom of the Falls where people can get up close and personal (and soaking wet).

Waterfall is always an emotional attraction for nature. The link contains information on some of the falls in Finland's highest peak. https://www.suomenvesiputoukset.fi/top-10-waterfalls-of-finland/
