Greetings From Niagara Falls
Here are some postcard shots from my recent trip to Niagara Falls. The NY State Park on the US side is the oldest state park in our country. I was impressed with the park, variety of vantage points, the fact that it is free and open 24 hours-a-day and of course, the falls themselves. Photographing them was not as easy as I imagined it would be. On the American side both falls can only be viewed from an observation platform (below). The first photo here was shot from the platform but because there was so much mist coming from the Horseshoe Falls in the distance it was not possible to get a clear shot of both falls. The view is actually best from the Canadian side but because of the heavy mist coming from the falls photographing from there was wet and also difficult. The wind was not that strong so I am not sure if there are times when the mist is not a problem. At night flood lights are cast on the falls creating a unique and breathtaking view. There is a lot to do in the area including a casino, bird aviary, butterfly museum, public garden and more. I was sorry I hadn’t planned on staying longer than a day.
