A grabbed shot as the camera was underneath spray from 750,000 gallons of water travelling at 40 mph !
A moment captured, a memory forever.
A wonderful capture ... superb when viewed large.
I was thinking today about Captain Webb, (He tried to swim across the river and died.) This led to thoughts of Niagara, and I wondered if what I had heard was true. That there is access underground, to viewpoints like this. Or did you just lean out a bit! Lovely shot, and surprisingly little burn out.
Well I spent a lot of time leaning out of course, but yes this was taken at the Behind the Falls site, where you can walk through a tunnel to get to this place, other tunnels take you further behind the falls, but its just for a look at the thunderous water cascading before you a few feet away.
Great image. Very original.
You did well to keep the water off the lens. This shot is almost surreal, well grabbed
Great shot. I have seen many shots of these falls but never one like this.
Fantastic - you know, I've never seen a photo from there! But then, I don't know anyone who has ever been
A bog click for happy mempries - it's an awesome place that truly blew my mind when I went there.
The tunnel into the rock takes you to literally a few feet behind the wall of water - it doesn't just fall down but there are swirls and shapes and patterns - quite psychedelic and mind blowing. highly recommended.
Any way, lovely shot, nice one
Fantastic capture. I like the colours very much. i know how dark it gets behind the falls.
Excellent shot reduced or viewed fullsize.
just goes to show,grabbed shots can be up there with the best of them,great image..Matt
Wow! Very nice shot. Must have got a little wet taking this!
could be a postcard! excellent!
Great sense of power in this, Alethea. Somewhere else I have to see!
A real beauty.
Are you dry yet.
Thanks for the response to this one, I wasn't sure what I got with a few grab shots and I was worrying about the camera, had it in a plastic bag under a yellow raincoat they give you to wear, but the force of the water/wind blows the spray everywhere.
This is, I think, the most original shot of the Niagara Falls I've seen so far. Interesting idea to exclude land, etc. almost completely from the photo and just shoot water and sky. I think it works very well!
Very deserving of an RC - beautoful scope, and as others have said, an original view of the falls.
Thank you for those latest clicks and comments, much appreciated.
Good shot Alethea.Though it was Ystradfellte then for a moment,then i noticed the blue skies;0)
Hi Alethea. Wonderful image, bit more force to this waterfall than Sgwd Gwladus by the looks of it
Thanks Andrew and Phil, one week I was up at Ystradfellte the next I was at Niagara, just a bit of a difference, but both wonderful in different ways.
Was going to say "Scwd yr Eira it isn't" but Phil & Andrew got there first!
A very different view from the norm Alethea, a super shot.
Thanks Gwyn, and you can walk behind the both ! lol
Gorgeous shot, Alethea, what a powerful view. (not mentioning Ystradfellte LOL)
