Holiday on ice

You should see a few sites while on vacation. Since we didn't see many besides the inside of a Publix supermarket in Florida last week, it seemed like a good idea to go to Niagara Falls while bringing the camera.

I'm a firm believer that Niagara Falls is under-publicized in the winter. It's quite beautiful in a very stark way. Let's see some proof; click on the pictures themselves for a larger view ...

This looks like some astronauts are exploring the moon or something. It actually was a training exercise on Terrapin Point on the American side, as the staff was practicing a rescue effort. That's why the people are connected by rope. The mist of the Falls gives the snow a glaze.

I kind of like the way a rainbow appeared by the American falls. You can see the Maid of the Mist, drydocked, on the Canadian side.

This was taken near the Niagara Gorge Discovery Center. It does feel like you are overlooking a glacier. By the way, there's a waterfall going into the gorge on the left side, which is breaking up the ice by the bridge.

OK, back to work.
