From the Canadian side we have a clear view of Niagara Falls Buffalo. I really enjoy going to the falls, on my next trip out there I would like to go later in the day. So I would be able to catch the falls at night. When the lights hit the falls at night they become magnificent.

I read recently that on June 15, 2012 Nik Wallenda will walk across Niagara Falls. You can follow his training at http://www.niagarafallstourism.com/eyeon/nik-wallenda/

Niagara Falls Canada – Day trip

Took a day trip to Niagara Falls, this is the first time I went with my DSLR. This first trip was fun and will return sometime during the summer.

Don’t baby your equipment


I know that camera equipment is expensive however sometimes you may want to risk a little. Here is a photo from a recent trip I took on a local trail. I wanted to try an HDR of this little waterfall I found. I shot it from several angles before actually getting into the stream. Using a tripod placed in the water, I set the camera up about 6 inches above the water, aiming the camera up the falls. Set my bracketing to take 7 pictures at different exposures. I did hold on to the camera strap incase the current wanted to pull my setup away.

Got home and did the post processing with Photomatix. All in all not a bad way to spend the day.

Yeah I did get my feet a little wet but it was a great experience.
