Photographer's Note

Another scanned image to end the series on Niagara Fall.

Shot was taken on board a tour boat famously known as ‘Maid of the Mist’ which is so aptly named providing a great opportunity to have another thrilling adventure of a life time by getting so close to the falls at the bottom into the dense mist of spray inside the curve of the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side. it's so fascinating to watch the boat against the sheer power of the water off the falls and this image shows just the boat was approaching the closest point. It seems to have an almost David vs Goliath feel to it.

The falls is massive, words do it no justice. The force with which it falls, the spray and white water looks like you walked right into a blizzard. The giant wall that appears before the eyes as the boat gets really close and turns, is almost frightening but it is also mostly awe inspiring. The indescribable roar of the Falls as it drops 65 meters down is so deafening, at one point I could not hear anyone speaking, at this point is where you will definitely get drenched whether you go to the upper deck of the boat or stay at the lower level. Any loosen or untightened ponchos will be blown off by the wind!!

It was fantastic, a superb unforgettable experience and you can judge by the photo to have a good idea of the perspective offered by the Maid of the Mist......
