Niagara Falls, Ontario

Niagara Falls

It's amazing how the same photography subject can look very different when taken at different times. The picture above was taken in autumn 2001 on my first visit to Niagara falls. The similar picture on the left was taken in spring of 2004.
The horse-driven carriage in the background is a hit to tourists.
It was spring time and the trails and sidewalks in Niagara were lined with these flowers.
The Rainbow Bridge connects the tourist districts of Niagara Falls, N.Y., with Niagara Falls, Ontario. It is one of the three bridges spanning the Niagara River that connect Canada and the US.
The awesome Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side of the border. A tremendous volume of water, 600,000 U.S. gallons per second, runs through it. The fall is 167 feet.
My picture taken during my first visit to Niagara Falls in October 2001 just a few days after I arrived in Canada.
With my friend Martin in April 2004. Niagara Falls attracts some 12 Million tourists each year.
The Sheraton building and the busy Casino Niagara beside it. Martin easily won about $200 in a 30-minute bout with the slot machine.
One of the main streets in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
The American Falls on the US side. Its height is 176 feet but due to rocks at the base, the actual fall is only around 70 feet. The volume of water at 150,000 gallons per second is only a quarter of that in Horseshoe Falls.
The American Falls and the Rainbow Bridge. It's interesting to note that the flow over the American Falls was stopped completely for several months in 1969 to determine the feasibility of removing the large amount of loose rocks at the base of the falls to enhance its appearance. In the end it was decided that the expense would be too great.
The new FallsView Casino that was still undergoing finishing touches when this picture was taken. It opened two months later in June 2004.
