When it gets cold enough in Niagara Falls, the Falls freeze. Well, they don’t freeze entirely, it has to be pretty damn cold for that to happen. And it has. But recently it was cold enough for lots of ice to happen. It was over the Christmas break 2017. It was very cold and I was amazed/shocked at how many people were out braving the cold. Likely because the Christmas break is the only time when some can get away with the children. School and all. Anyway, it was really cold; so taking photos wasn’t easy on the hands but the resulting photos made it so worth while.
This was all hand held. Next time I’ll get some kind of gloves that allow me to handle my camera and bring a tripod. That way I can catch some evening pics with the coloured lights on the ice.
No-one is doing the ‘under the falls’ walk!:
Long exposure without a tripod:
These really show the ice and snow:
