Niagara Falls in the Winter

Yesterday, we drove 45 minutes south to Niagara Falls. We left our hip height snow banks behind and were astounded to find stretches of grass - albeit brown grass in and around town. No doubt they'll be planting a lot sooner than I will! The Falls are beautiful in the winter. The light was a bit flat for photos - but the beauty of the Falls was undiminished.

What struck me was how quiet they were compared with the summer - the ice dam at their base seemed to really muffle the sound. Can you believe how the ice has sculpted itself around the light standards; it is simply amazing!
