I prefer to photograph the Niagara Falls in spring when there is lots of water from the snow melt in the river. Makes the waterfalls especially powerful, depending on wind direction you may also end up with lots of mist, this can be great but also ruin the shot as often the wind pushes the mist against the viewing areas.
On the day I captured this photo conditions were pretty much ideal, we had a very hazy sunset but it still let enough light through to create a beautiful orange sky. The perfect contrast to the greens of the river.
The Horseshoe Waterfall is the best known waterfall of all 3 Niagara Falls. Its name is given by the typical horseshoe form.

I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS-1DS, aperture of f/13.0, exposure time of 1/2 sec. on ISO 100, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 19mm.
