After our most recent two day snowstorm and my endless shoveling I had to get out the moment it ended. This was photographed at golden hour looking across the Niagara River towards the frozen shore of Goat Island. The top of the American Falls can be seen on the right edge. By the time I was done all my gear and myself were coated in ice. It was about 20 degrees and the wind was blowing west to east. It was all worth it in the end I think.
Every morning is different when the sun rises above Niagara Falls. If I could, I would be out there every morning, rain, snow or shine to capture that beauty. Crossing the border on a daily basis isn't practical but I go as often as I can. Usually you hope for some clouds to play with the colors a bit but this morning was clear and the colors were intense. Having the sun diffused by the mist had a major role in that appearance.
