In early July work took my to Buffalo, NY and then to Toronto, ON after that. Since I was going to be essentially driving right past it, I felt I had to plan a side trip to Niagara Falls along the way. I had visited Niagara Falls once about 10 years before, but haven't been back since owning a camera (I don't think I have any photos from my past brief visit). It's an oft-visited spot, and not quite like the National Parks where I prefer to spend my time shooting if I can. But it's truly a sight to behold and absolutely worth visiting if you have the chance.
Since I was there on a Friday afternoon, the crowds weren't too bad, so I didn't feel too bad taking up some space and time in the prime viewing location at the edge of the falls to setup my tripod. I brought my ND400 filter to let me take this as a long exposure. The color of the water is pronounced as it plunges down, and I took advantage of that to create a fairly high contrast black and white conversion.
