[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Niagara Falls are located on the international border between Canada (Ontario State) and the USA (New York State).
The Canadian Horseshoe Falls are on the right side of the photo, the ide American Falls in front. On the left side part of the bridge over Niagara River, connecting USA with Canada. The international boundary line was originally drawn through Horseshoe Falls in 1819, but the boundary has long been in dispute due to natural erosion and construction.
The Niagara River drains Lake Erie into Lake Ontario. The falls were formed when glaciers receded at the end of the last ice age and water from the newly formed Great Lakes carved a path through the Niagara Escarpment en route to the Atlantic Ocean. While not exceptionally high (around 50m), the Niagara Falls are very wide. More than 168,000 m3 of water falls over the crest line every minute in high flow, and almost 110,000 m3 on average.

Bonjour Miro,

Quel magnifique panorama, j'ai un panorama enneigé à peu près équivalent, j'aime bien l'équilibre des couleurs de votre composition, merci pour le partage!

Hi Miro,
Great perspective and the contrasting colors make for a incredible eye catching image.
