The thundering Falls is quite the sight in winter. Ice makes the place magical. I was there yesterday at almost sunset and thought I would bring you along to see what I see. Just a quick post into the icy landscape called Niagara.
It is not a place you get to see from here very often at sunset, especially in winter. The reason is the ice is treacherous getting up to the tower for this view. Also the park closes the gates about 4pm. I was there when the gates were closed.
Birds also take shelter in the woods around the Falls. I photograph many songbirds in these woods. See the post, Birds in Winter Weather for some really pretty images of a variety of birds at this location. The woods and the upper rapids have birds by the thousands. It is one of the top places to see gulls for avid birdwatchers. And those liking red cardinals? A wonderful place to see them at their winter best.
