A classic view of the renowned Niagara Falls, taken last year, when I also crossed the pond and visited the US and Canada. Staying in Toronto, it was only about a 2h-drive to the Niagara Falls on the US-Canadian border. This picture was taken on the Canadian side, but what you see is the USA.
Niagara Falls is actually the collective name of three waterfalls, all located on the Niagara River at the southern end of the Niagara Gorge.
This picture shows you two of the three falls: the American Falls and the Bridal Veils Falls, the latter being the one on the right hand side. The largest falls can be found farther to the right. These Horseshoe Falls form the Canadian part. The American Falls are between 70-110ft high (21-34m), the Bridal Veil is about 78ft/24m high.
The city in the background is Niagara Falls (NY), with the city on Canadian side being unsurprisingly called Niagara Falls (ON).
Not included in this photo is the astonishing noise the millions of litres of water, tumbling down every single second, incessantly make. ;-)
Hope you like this photo, thanks for your visit.

Meteen een zeer groot beeld met de waterval en de brug en de wolken krabbers in de achtergrond.
heel mooie samenstelling met diepte en perspectief.
en scherpte maken uw foto zeer aangenaam om naar te kijken.
Mooi foto werk, bedankt.
Groeten uit Vlaanderen,

Aha, het is dus deze geworden.
Een klassieker, maar dan wel een van uitstekende kwaliteit en gelukkig ontbreekt de regenboog niet.
De hoge gebouwen op de achtergrond geven wel een heel ander beeld dan de schilderijen van de waterval die we in de Amerikaanse musea hebben gezien.

This is a super picture of this famous waterfall taken from the Canadian side. The rainbow and the lovely colours in the water are lovely. A very sharp and well exposed image.

Bonjour, cher Lars,
Il faut ouvrir la version large pour en avoir plein la vue. Les chutes américaines sont impressionnantes.
L'on imagine le vacarme assourdissant permanent des chutes en mouvement.

It is astonishing that you have been able to include so much in the one photograph. The falls look tremendous with the gushing white spume and the hovering rainbow, especially when you get a sense of scale from the many yellow-coated figures!
A very well composed shot, sharp and colourful.
My warm regards,

It may be classic, but it is beautiful and it looks great technically, except for what looks like a wee tilt to the left, notable on the buildings.

Interesantan tekst o vodopadu sa opisom, lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazan vodopad i arhitektura u pozadini.
Imajte lep dan, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
An interesting article on the waterfall with a description, a nice view and a moment ...
Good time recording, contrast and perspective, well shown waterfall and architecture in the background.
Have a nice day, all the best in the new week that started, good luck.

Those are wonderful waterfalls and you took a classic, but always welcome picture of them!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
I love the presence of that rainbow!
I also enjoy seeing all those visitors on the left side of it!
TFS - congrats,

Would be good to add some link to the noise of the falls , so we can watch and listen
Good to capture the rainbows and better the inclusion of the canadian city at the back
Informative note, well done, regards
carlo62 (43557) 2014-08-11 14:43
bella foto, manca solo il sonoro....
Mi piace come hai inquadrato la foto, con i grandi palazzi sullo sfondo, senza però dimenticare niente delle cascate, come la spuma bianca, le nuvole e l'arcobaleno.
macjake (64704) 2014-08-11 14:51
having lived in Canada for all my 38 years, i have never been to Niagara Falls.....perhaps in the future than.
you have a very bright and well exposed photograph here.
of course the rainbow is a total bonus.
nice to have this view with the city in the bg too, adds more interest that way.
mesutilgim (92364) 2014-08-12 2:55
Nice capture of Niagara Falls with a different pow.
Interesting to see that the modern urbanising has created a different background to the scenery.
TFS and best regards
danos (94242) 2014-08-12 3:01
i'll be in Canada/Montreal from 14th-27th of August and of course i'll visit Niagara falls to see this spectacular physical phenomenon like you.Excellent the view as the presentation,with the rainbow to makes the whole scene even more effective.
stamatis (2561) 2014-08-12 4:48
Great shot. The sky looks very nice with these clounds. great view of fantastic waterfal POV is well choosen .
Nicou (136148) 2014-08-12 5:21
Quelle image et compo fantastique chutte d'eau et vue avec un rayon de couleur sueprbe quel effet d'évaporation d'eau et ces bâtiment en fond fantastique vue.
Bravo et amitié
ourania (41234) 2014-08-12 9:05
your picture shows a fascinating natural spectacle in such an effective way. All the layers and elements of your composition are well defined and interesting, some quite impressive and stunning. The scene evokes the roar of the water but the background looks so peaceful. Apart from the instantly eye-catching parts, I also like the clouds behind and over the buildings. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
PiotrF (15252) 2014-08-12 9:32
Very nice capture of Niagara Falls, impressive view.
I like your very good composition. Excellent colors, sharpness and clarity.Very pleasant picture
UlfE (14641) 2014-08-12 11:13
A wonderful and very well-composed photo of the Niagara Falls. Your inclusion of the foam and the rock with some birds in the foreground is great. It adds a sense of the size of the falls. It not easy to capture the majesty of the falls in a photo, but you have done it very well. TFS and have a nice evening!
berek (47314) 2014-08-12 21:05
I love niagara. show a great image. I understand the power of water from your picture . part the picture should be taken from Canada side
rychem (32245) 2014-08-12 21:49
Superb! The photo is perfect, great wide view of Niagara waterfalls and a very nice rainbow as addition, bravo
Graal (101714) 2014-08-12 23:21
nice view of famous waterfalls. Good shot from fine POV. Image is well composed. Amazing additional effect of rainbow. I like it.
Have a nice day.
Cricri (115557) 2014-08-13 10:24
Une vue splendide des chutes avec en prime les couleurs de l'arc en ciel, il ne manque plus que le son, intéressante architecture différentes de la ville
pierrefonds (63330) 2014-08-13 17:10
The wideness of the area is giving depth to the composition. You have captured well the poer of the Niagara Falls. The rainbow is a good addition to the scene. Have a nice day.
Didi (60358) 2014-08-15 0:42
Vey nice view on the falls
They should not buit in this natural place
Good lights control for the rainbow
eldancer1 (35501) 2014-08-16 7:35
One of my dream is to visit the Niagara Falls, maybe some time in the future. For now I am enjoying this post. I can almost hear the roar of the water coming down the falls. Nice capture with good details. Well done, tfs.
adores (43869) 2014-08-16 9:34
Good to see you're coming back:)!
This is a fabulous place. when I was there, a few years ago, it was raining and the weather was really terrible. Here, you have sun and a beautiful weather. I like the pov, the colours and the rainbow is perfect there.
ChrisJ (109532) 2014-08-21 1:56
I like the rainbow at left and the superb colour, saturation and sharpness. Nicely composed into thirds of water, falls, and sky. The bg highrise contrasts well against the natural fg elements. The walkways at right add interest. Tfs!
batalay (37851) 2014-08-22 22:50
This is a classic shot of the mighty falls, the view from the Canadian side, with the edge of a rainbow peeking in mist. The expansive view you present truly does justice to the falls. Once in a rare while, the place freezes up. Take a look at these photos of a frozen Niagara Falls.
Have a good weekend,
swapankumarroy (2847) 2014-08-28 23:25
An excellent view of famous Niagara Falls with modern architectural background and beautiful blue skyline. The color of rainbow is very lovely projected on this massive water falls. Good composition and well sharped image.
warm regards and thanks,
serp2000 (43108) 2014-09-10 6:29
We were here on September'13. Good capture of the rainbow ("Catch the Rainbow" is one of my favorite albums of the past). Very interesting panoramic composition, perfect DoF. TFS!
Gigidusud (19881) 2014-09-18 13:45
Great capture to the Niagara Falls with splendid movement of water enriched by the rainbow. Well done!
fritzi007 (10401) 2014-09-22 13:48
very good representation of the Niagara Falls and rainbow, good information!
clic (16622) 2014-09-23 8:13
For once, we have in Canada something bigger than in the USA!! I mean a better point of view for showing the American Falls and the Bridal Veil and of course, the Niagara Falls themselves, not so photogenic seen from the american side!
Many compliments for the subtle light tones that reveal all the delicacy of this sumptuous phenomenon.
jmdias (61322) 2015-12-24 5:13
I knew Iguassu and Victoria, I only should to visit this one to complete my list of the 3 big ones.
very nice view of the falls with the buildings breaking the natural landscape.
