I was surprised to realize that, living in Ontario and all, I haven’t told you anything about the Niagara Falls yet.
The area around Niagara is a unique place, known for its vineyards, fruit orchards, and incredible organic vegetables. This time, we came for peaches and tomatoes. Having decided not to waste the opportunity, and take another look at the waterfall, we drove up to it right at the moment when you could see several rainbows all at once.
It’s usually like this with the Niagara Falls. It tends to want to leave you a gift to remember the day. This gift could be an especially impenetrable fog. So thick was this fog that you could only hear the hypnotizing sound of the descending water.
In the winter, it’s the trees that surround the place. Their frost-encrusted branches seem to ring louder than the waterfall itself as they touch one another.
Sometimes, you might capture a particularly clear image. No wind, no clouds to spoil the composition.
I have a favourite place in this area. It’s the spot where the water is just about to plunge, and its surface reminds me of molten glass. Whenever I stand there, looking at that spot, the water changes colour.
The Niagara Falls is always full of visitors, regardless of the weather or the season. It’s not easy to reach the metal banisters in order to take a good photo. You just about have to fight for the opportunity.
If you travel upwards along the stream, the river becomes direct, agreeable, without any signs of the magnificent masses of water, which can be found cascading only a short distance away.
Along the river, there are many parks, where you could stop by to take a break, have a snack, and think your thoughts. In those moments, you will likely continue thinking of the waterfall nearby – the Niagara Falls, which never ceases to astound.
In the recent times, I have received several awards from my wonderful blogging friends. I would like to thank you all greatly. You encourage me to go on regardless of the circumstances that keep me busy.
