looking down the Niagara River, with the Horseshoe Falls on the right and the Amercian Niagara Falls to the upper left. The Niagara Falls are probably the biggest tourist attraction in Canada, and for sure in Ontario. It is one of those places which I absolutely love...and hate. Because it is such a beautiful destination it is also very very, very well visited vacation spot.
I highly recommend to visit the Falls out of season. Once, and only once I was down here on a Summer weekend, ohhh my god, what a zoo. Way too busy for us, so we turned around and left.
The other times we were here was spring, which is my favorite time to be in Ontario (well, actually I equal that with fall!). The Niagara Falls are very powerful this time of the year and carry lots of thundering water, to me they are still most dramatic in spring a during and after the snow melt.
The other positive side is that it is not soooo extremely busy as it is here in summer. The Niagara Falls are not only a famous vacation spot, it is a tourist attraction, a honey moon destination, a natural wonder and and and...So if you can avoid weekends that helps and if you are able to come in shoulder season you get the best of what the Falls have to offer.it will be still busy but most times it is acceptable.
Said that - tome the Niagara Falls are still one of those amazing places, photographed a million times but still, it is a place I always want to return and to photograph it, maybe light is more dramatic next time, maybe light is the best in this picture, I never will know till I return.
From Table Rock in Niagara Canada visitors have a great view of the brink of the mightly Niagara River and the Niagara Falls plumeting to the Maid of the Mist pool below. From Table Rock, tourists can travel to the heart of the falls and stand beside or behind the veil of water and feel the thunder. Emerging from the water drenching shield of the falls, Table rock also has many vantage points for visitors to see the falls plus a shopping complex and dining opportunities.
