Niagara Falls Travel Photography
Niagara Falls. Three powerful waterfalls that are the very seam that separates the United States and Canada. I remember stories of people plunging over the waterfall in nothing but a barrel. Stories that built a reputation of a sort wonder of the world. I mean it’s Niagara Falls. Sometimes there’s places that I’ve seen countless pictures of and then when I get there, it’s like I’ve never seen it until I’ve seen it with my own eyes.
I will never forget my first visit to Niagara Falls; my first spontaneous trip. It was the first time I decided to just get in my car and drive and it was the match that sparked my desire to travel & adventure. Like the first, we drove throughout the night arriving as day broke. Walking towards the falls I could already feel it in the air; the mere power that pushes it’s mist, spreading, meeting me up at the end of the street. And then I see it and it’s as if I’ve never seen it before. I notice these small moments that I have never seen in photographs. The moment when the water returns to the Niagara River as if the the waterfall was a mere pebble in the road. Seagulls quietly float through the air just to dance in front of the waterfall.
These are the moments that is Niagara Falls for me.
