Niagara Falls – The Big Melt

The photos in this post were taken just one month ago when I made a special trip to Niagara Falls to see them in their winter beauty. I had heard that the ice was beginning to melt so I joined a small group of my friends from the Oshawa Camera Club and made the 2 and a half hour trip on the Fun Bus. For a very reasonable rate, we made a day of it with the ride, a wonderful buffet lunch and opportunity to try our luck at the slots.

The weather on the 12th of march was absolutely beautiful! It was very sunny and warm enough to spend all of the afternoon outdoors. I wanted to share a few of the pictures which I took. Due to the time of day, the Canadian Falls were backlit and with the spray, I had very little luck in getting any decent shots but the American Falls were spectacular.

This was a wonderful sight. I encourage everyone to see Niagara Falls in the winter at least once. For me, it was well worth the trip!

    Thanks for sending the photos of the falls. They are breath taking. It is hard to believe that one year the falls went dry because of ice build up on th Lake Erie side. Judy

    Some thoughts you may have already considered but worth sharing with your Blog visitors.
    In bright condition where snow and water (they reflect light) may be present, using a polarizer filter on your camera will be extremely beneficial.

    This review explains and demonstrates the benefits.
