Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada

by Danica


Who wouldn’t want to see Niagara Falls? It’s the most famous waterfall in the world.

At the beginning of Bruce Almighty, Jim Carrey’s character does a news report from Niagara Falls in the midst of the actual waterfall. If you’ve seen the movie, you’ll remember that he’s wearing a poncho raincoat thing and an umbrella hat. This made me realise that you could actually go into the waterfall, despite the large amounts of cascading water, and it made me want to go even more.

Further research has led me to discover that Niagara Falls is not just one waterfall, but three waterfalls—the Horseshoe, American and Bridal Veil waterfalls collectively make up Niagara. I presume the Horseshoe is the one pictured here.

Artist’s comments:

Every year the Canadian falls erodes by less than a foot. It used to be more, but a bunch of water is diverted for the hydro-electric dam which is visible along the horizon in this photo.
Since my first visit here, the falls have eroded by appox. 18 feet, and its noticeable!

They say in a thousands of years the falls will erode all the way back to Lake Erie.
