The American side of Niagara Falls is quite different from the more-often photographed Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side of the border.
These American waterfalls though show dramatically the effects of the never-ending erosion of so much water cascading over the edge. In winter, the boulders and sections of rock that have collapsed over the many years are covered in ice from the mist - it all assumes a very dramatic form.
The river keeps raging, and the volume of water plummets to the bottom, courses among the boulders and flows under the ice that crusts the river's surface.
The scale of this is enormous, and can be seen in the relative size of the people at the lookout who are peering down through the mist at the spectacle.

The full size version makes it possible to fully appreciate this stunning view. Those boulders are really huge but soft snow give them sort of touchable appearance. Good direction of light making those forms clearly visible. On different weather the whole spectacle disappears into mist I guess.

This snow covered boulders and the spray indeed lend a dramatic touch to this nice photo. The moulded shape of the snow covered rocks is very attractive. A fine photo of a spectacular natural wonder of the world. Thanks for sharing.

altra prospettiva di questa meraviglia della natura! Una versione del tutto invernale che lascia a bocca aperta! Uno scenario più drammatico rispetto alla precedente.
Bella luce e nitidezza.

Excellent winter detail photo in perfect light, very good clarity. Superb arrangement. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions. Well done.
P.s. I never saw frozen Niagara Falls, must be fantastic experience.
