    Colorful with an almost Disney-like aesthetic, charming for postcards, perhaps. The drama of all that foamy white liquid gushing forth reminds of something exciting! Sometimes I wish a torrent of someone ....I mean something - would just dominate me!

    Aren't some of those shots of the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side? From what I can remember when I was there last, the Canadian side was nice and pretty while the US side had trash all over the place.

    Regardless, those are some pretty sweet pictures.

    The view of the falls is best from the Canadian side. From the American side you can get closer to the falls, but you are looking at it from the side. rather than straight across. These pics were taken from the observation deck of the Skylon Tower on the Canadian side. There are fireworks over the falls every Sunday night in the summer. The Festival of Lights at Christmas time is really beautiful, too.

    Yup that's what I remember as well, the American side wasn't as appealing. We went on the Maid of the Mist tour boat that goes really close to the Horseshoe Falls, and it was pretty cool.

    I've never been there during the fireworks, so that sounds like it would be really nice to see.

    This is Hurricane Deck, but I did not take a camera on this. lol This is shot with a zoom from the top. This is as close as you can get to the American Falls and shows the power of the falls.

    This is both falls and I even captured a rainbow. That is Niagara Falls, Canada in the background.
