A Photo Essay: Niagara

Niagara Falls is a beautiful area; we only had enough time to spend one day there, but we thoroughly enjoyed it.  It was nice to get a bit of fall weather and see the leaves start to change.  Here are some photos from the Niagara Falls and Niagara on the Lake portion of our weekend getaway:

  3. Beautiful, it is on my bucket list!

  4. Fantastic pictures. You really acpture the feel of the area. Ir eally like the one of the grass in the vineyard. It is very vibrant.

  5. Gorgeous Autumn shots. Love it.

  6. Beautiful pics! I love Niagara Falls, particularly at night time! It’s one of my favourite attractions that I’ve been so many times already! Congrats on being FP!

  7. I spent my honeymoon at Niagara Falls back in ’85 and loved every minute of it. It is most definitely a beautiiful place to be and now, you have me longing to return. Seeing the falls at night…. it just doesn’t get any more beautiful than that!

  8. Went last year. Awesome!

  9. I especially liked the shot you made of Niagara and rainbow type look. Did you use a special lens for that pic? Nice Job!

  10. Love the blues in the photos. Still one of my favorite places to visit!

  11. Was this caused by Hurricane Sandy?

  12. Your photos are absolutely beautiful, is made me really want to visit Niagra Falls! X

  13. I did a post on Niagara a while back, my photos aren’t nearly as magnificent s yours.

  14. Enjoyed your photos.

  15. Your pictures of fall in Niagara Falls are awesome. Did you have a favorite part of the trip?

  16. Lovely photos :) Nostalgic.

    These are some beautiful images. Check them out, dear readers. — J.W.

  18. Thanks for taking me back to Niagara. Your night pictures are great, and the daytime ones even better. How did you get so close at the bottom, where the spray is so heavy everyone gets wet, without blitzing your camera?

    • Thanks, and you are welcome! Micah has a waterproof bag/case for his camera, so it worked really well on the Maid of the Mist. Glad we didn’t experience any leaks, but on the other hand, we got pretty soaked, even with the ponchos! :)

  19. Lovely images. I am in love with Niagara Falls, absolutely, with its beauty and power, and I want to go there and make the opposite photo gallery of the area’s decay and tackiness, just blocks from the Falls.

    • Thanks! That would be an interesting photo essay–I would love to see it if you ever get a chance to do it! There is definitely a lot of tackiness nearby, it’s quite the contrast, unfortunately

  20. Niagara Falls is in my “backyard” ( about an hours drive ) . Been there multiple times and never tire of it. The Falls are breathtaking every time. Very Historical area as well, lots to see and learn.

    • I can see why you would never tire of it–it’s so beautiful. It would have been fun to dive into more of the history as well–maybe next time–I’m sure it has a very interesting past!

  21. I live about a 20 minute drive from the Falls. Even as a local, I go by there several times a year, This is in addition to the times when I take an out-of-town guest or foreign visitor to see the Falls. Magnificent. Glorious. I never get tired of it.

  22. Fantastic photos! Keep them coming!

  23. Amazing Photo’s, i LOVE the coloured ones of the waterfall!!!

  24. Makes me want to go there some day. Now maybe I will. Congratulations for getting Freshly Pressed!

  25. spectacular.. i hope to visit it one day..

  26. Amazing images!

    Thanks for sharing :)


  27. I grew up on Grand Island, an Island on the Niagara River just above the Falls. It really is a spectacular area and I have a lot of great memories from being raised there. The winters, however, were long and cold but visually beautiful when the ice and snow formed and fell around the cascading water. Great photos…thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks! I wanted to make it over to Grand Island, but unfortunately didn’t get a chance. It sounds beautiful though! And sounds like a fun place to grow up too! I would love to see the falls in the winter–the ice and snow would add such an interesting effect.

  28. So beautiful!

  29. Nice snaps! I looove every single one. :)

  30. Reblogged this on Nathan Ko and commented:
    Too bad the American Falls are only visible from Canada.

    • Thanks for the reblog! I agree, the view from the American side isn’t near as good as it is from Canada, but the nature around the American side seems so much better!

  31. wonderful pics…. <3 :)

  32. Wow, I had no idea they lit up Niagra Falls at night. I’m not sure if you’re a fan. but I can’t help but think of ‘The Office’ when I see Niagra Falls. Great shots!

  33. I live in Toronto and I make it a habit to go at least once a year to Niagra-on-the-Lake and the Falls. If you ever go back make sure you go to a local winery, there are several. they offer wine tasting and tours and they are absolutly beautiful to walk around and take in the vinyards.

    • We went to Toronto for a day as well–we really enjoyed both areas a lot! I would love to visit one of the wineries. They looked like a lot of fun when we were driving by–will have to put in on our list for next time. Thanks!

  34. beautiful, would love to go if I get a chance.

  35. I absolutely LOVE Niagara Falls! It’s breathtakingly gorgeous. If you ever get the chance, take the Behind the Falls Tour. It’s such a intense feeling to be that close to something so powerful.

  36. Viewing your photos of Niagara Falls is the next best thing to being there. Thanks!

  37. Awesome photos, especially liked the pic with all the people in raincoats.


  38. Spectacular photos of an iconic place!


  39. Gorgeous photos. I’ve been there twice and seeing your photos brought back some nice memories.

    I love the Prince of Wales Hotel, too. I’d love to stay there one day.

  40. very nice pics :)

  41. Oh my god! This is so lovely! I am unable to choose which one of these snaps I like the best!

  42. These are some beautiful pictures! Thanks for sharing :)

  43. stunning – I especially love the autumn leaves =D

  44. Wow! You captured Niagara with totally fresh eyes. I love this post!

  45. Great stuff, really enjoyed this!

  46. Reblogged this on Gealachs Blogg and commented:
    Hittade ett inlägg med jättefina bilder från Niagarafallen! Det är ett av de ställen jag bestämt att jag måste se innan jag dör!

  47. Oh, Niagara is quite a special place to me. It’s been a Summer getaway for many Summers past.
    Wonderful share!

  48. Very pretty pictures, but the colour lights at night smack of Vegas tackiness! LOL

  49. I thoroughly enjoyed the wonders of this essay. Its so fresh, crisp and inspiring. Thanks for sharing!

  50. I was lucky enought to get to visit the Falls. Gosh, such handywork! The ever-present rainbows could knock the frown right off of your face haha Great post, thanks for sharing and congrats on FP!

  51. I got a couple of good shots in Winter some years ago.But Autumn does look great…

  52. Thanks for these gorgeous reminders of a great day we spent at Niagra on the lake and the Falls a couple of years ago. Congrats on being freshly pressed too

  53. Stunning photos!

  54. Amazing! :)

  55. Lovely photos of my hometown(s)! I grew up in Niagara-On-The-Lake but worked most of my life in Niagara Falls. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. :)

  56. Remarkable. All are excellent, liked the photos of the streets in particular, where you were able to communicate the mood to the viewer. Good Job

  57. Gorgeous photos. We live in Toronto but visit the Niagara Region a lot. There is a great biking trail on the Canadian side. Several years ago I took my kids to the US park and we walked out on that lookout – they still remember it, especially the wind!

    I so enjoy this blog I had to share it with you.

  60. Great photos Jenna! Niagra looks so amazing I didn’t know it lit up at night. Keep up the good work :)

    • Thanks–we appreciate it! Before we went to Niagara, I had read something about the falls lighting up at night, but I had no idea how beautiful and bright it would be! I was glad we stopped by to check it out after dark.

  61. If you ever get the chance, you will have to come back in winter….the falls are stunning in February as the mist rises and freezes on everything it touches. On a sunny day, the trees and fences look like they are encrusted in crystal! Just gorgeous.

  62. beautifull
    i am very marvelled

  63. Awesome captures – I specially love the ones with the horse carriage.

  64. What wonderful worlds are USA and CANADA!
