Niagara Falls view from Queens Victoria Park in Canada.
The Niagara Falls are voluminous waterfalls on the Niagara River, straddling the international border between the Canadian province of Ontario and the U.S. state of New York. The falls are 17 miles (27 km) north-northwest of Buffalo, New York and 75 miles (121 km) south-southeast of Toronto, Ontario, between the twin cities of Niagara Falls, Ontario, and Niagara Falls, New York.
Niagara Falls is composed of two major sections separated by Goat Island: the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side and the American Falls on the American side. The smaller Bridal Veil Falls are also located on the American side, separated from the main falls by Luna Island. The international boundary line was originally drawn through Horseshoe Falls in 1819, but the boundary has long been in dispute due to natural erosion and construction.
Niagara Falls were formed when glaciers receded at the end of the Wisconsin glaciation (the last ice age), and water from the newly formed Great Lakes carved a path through the Niagara Escarpment en route to the Atlantic Ocean. While not exceptionally high, the Niagara Falls are very wide. More than 6 million cubic feet (168,000 m3) of water falls over the crest line 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.
The Niagara Falls are renowned both for their beauty and as a valuable source of hydroelectric power. Managing the balance between recreational, commercial, and industrial uses has been a challenge for the stewards of the falls since the 19th century.

the sense of the vastness and the abyss are well obtained in your shot. a difficult light for a photo that becomes impressive also for the tonality that joins the sky to the water. cheers
have a nice evening

I have no idea how your POV looked like but this picture gives me the feeling of standing just next to the abyss and the possibility to fall into the deep together with all that huge mass of water.
Majestic, impressive and a little frightening.
Best regards, Paul

La composition est très belle, avec la nature bien en évidence. C'est un exploit en soi d'avoir réussi à exclure toute construction ou présence humaine. Le ciel est superbe.

The view from the Canadian side of the NF, is most impressive - standing near the railing you feel the flow in full power's , as I rememberfrom 9/1978.
As for the image - I think it's a bit underexpose: see the sky's in relative pink, and water color dark green.
Otherwise, a fine POV to show the Horseshoe.

what a beautiful picture of Niagara falls.I can almost hear the rumble of water and feel the energy it makes when it falls down.I really like the color tones you´ve created here,especially those of the cloudy sky.Your picture has excellent quality and the colors are really beautiful and soft.
Have a nice day

Nice approach on the falls, onky the sound is missing :)
JCG (35129) 2011-04-29 9:34
We must avoid falling into the water here because the current is extremely powerful !!! I really like your framing on these waterfalls so famous and quality of the image with the overcast sky gives an atmosphere and an interesting color to the river water. Nice look, thank you Rui.
With all my friendships and a great weekend,
