Below Horseshoe Falls #2

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 9 January 2018 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Standing below Horseshoe Falls as its rushing water silences everyone's conversations. Thankfully the wind was blowing the mist out toward the Falls and away from the camera.

When I visited the Niagara Falls in 2007, we had blue raincoats. The yellow are very also and put a touch of color in your composition

They should consider to install some giant fans there to blow the water out, so tourists can stay dry and reduce the use of so many rain ponchos.

WHy not build a roof over the platform where they stand?
Great capture, I can feel some drops here.

9 Jan 2018 12:38pm

@Blikvanger: Before coming to this point, you have to walk behind the Falls, where you can get wet.

So gorgeous Steven, you could easily sell postcards of the falls, 5*****'s !~

A fine picture of this group which appears ready for the mist. For the cameras, it would be thankful the mist is blowing away.

There are always those who are more adventurous and do the visit without protective covers.
The sense of hearing and feeling the water to fall just off of us should be imposing.

A super image of the tremendous flow of water. A neat video of the power of the falls, too.

A gorgeous image. Such an interesting view seeing the water coming down right in front of you. The video is fabulous! You really get a feel for the power with water rushing down and hearing how loud it is.
