Niagara Falls at Night


For the first time in my life, I visited Niagara Falls at night and stayed to watch the fireworks with my family. I'm still figuring out how to take decent night shots with my DSLR so these are the best photos I could get. Of course, nothing beats seeing it in real life. Coo, what a sight!






Here is this week's Wordless Wednesday linky:

    1. Thanks, Amber! It's funny because my son was asking about fireworks last week, too. And that was before we made last-minute plans to travel to Niagara Falls.

  10. I visited Niagra Falls when I was in 5th grade. No need to divulge how many years ago that was. I didn't get to see the falls at night. I think that will be a great family vacation. Thanks for the idea.

    1. I went on a class trip with my grade 7 students one year but left before it got dark. We did get an amazing closeup by riding the Maid of the Mist, though!
