I hope you like it:)

Niagara Falls are a set of massive waterfalls located on the Niagara River in eastern North America, on the border between Ontario, Canada and New York state (United States). Niagara Falls (French: les Chutes du Niagara) comprises three separate waterfalls (one in Canada, the other two in the U.S.): the Canadian Horseshoe Falls (Canada), the American Falls, and the smaller, adjacent Bridal Veil Falls. The Falls are located 17 miles (27 km) from the American city of Buffalo, New York, and 75 miles (120 km) from the Canadian city of Toronto, Ontario.
The Falls formed after glaciers receded at the end of the most recent Ice Age, as water from the newly formed Great Lakes carved a path through the Niagara Escarpment en route to the Atlantic Ocean. While not exceptionally high, Niagara Falls is very wide. With more than 6 million cubic feet (168,000 m³) of water falling over the crestline every minute in high flow, and almost 4 million cubic feet (110,000 m³) on average, it is the most powerful waterfall in North America.
Niagara Falls is renowned both for its beauty and as a valuable source of hydroelectric power for Ontario and New York. Preserving this natural wonder from commercial over-development, while allowing for the needs of the area's people, has been a challenging project for environmental preservationists since the 1800s. A popular tourist site for over a century, the Falls are shared between the twin cities of Niagara Falls, Ontario and Niagara Falls, New York.

This is a nice touch!
The rainbow adds something to one of the most photographed sceneries in the US/ Canada!
Well composed image, and the atmosphere is well conveyed!

Bir Temel fıkrası vardı; Niagara'ya uyarlanan onu hatırladım; ne yaygara... Niagara, Niagara olalı böyle bir fotoğrafı olmamıştır herhalde... Bot var, kuş var, gökkuşağı bilem var...

I was going to review your latest post, but got hooked on this one. Since I know the place fairly well, and know that you have to be lucky to have ideal conditions, I can appreciate this fabulous shot. The rainbow, the colors of the water, the large bird flying overhead all colaborate to make this a memorable view. The power of the falls looms in the distance. Well done,

Fantastic view of the falls. The bird over the rainbow give a sense of freedom. The colors are splendid

Great framing; your choice to show the upstream river and falls in equal proportions works particularly well because you really captured this at the perfect moment with the boat angling its way up the river and the bird flying over that perfect rainbow. The colors have great clarity, the focus is sharp and mist is beautifully captured. This is the best Niagara Falls picture I have seen.
