Sunset On Horseshoe FallsSunset On Horseshoe Falls

Neither my wife, nor I, have been to Niagara Falls in over 45 years and never together. So, with a good weather forecast after my latest stint at Syracuse University, we headed West. Besides wanting to revisit the falls, I wanted (not surprisingly) to do some photography. The deep and relatively narrow gorge presented some interesting lighting challenges. Likewise, the large amount of "white water" and mist provided overwhelming contrast, as well as, difficulty in getting a correct exposure. The latter issues are exactly the kinds of problems I will be facing on my next major trip. Hint: it involves a very large amount of ice. Since it took so long to go back and forth between the U.S. and Canadian sides, I was somewhat limited in the amount of time that I could actually photograph. In the end, I got some (I think) good images. I know I learned a lot in the process. You can see the best of my Niagara Falls photos on my website.

As kind of a side note, all of the photos on this trip were taken with my Canon M5. I continue to appreciate the reduction in weight and size of my kit, relative to my DSLR's. But, as I learn to shoot this particular camera, I increasingly am amazed at the quality of the images the camera is capable of. I do wish, especially after this trip, that it was weather-sealed. 

Enjoy the photos.
