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.

You did well to keep the water off the lens. This shot is almost surreal, well grabbed

Fantastic - you know, I've never seen a photo from there! But then, I don't know anyone who has ever been Tongue

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

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. Smile

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.

A very different view from the norm Alethea, a super shot.
