After getting up at 6am, driving through the Adirondacks in the morning, then the Finger Lakes Region for sunset, I kept going and going like an energizer bunny until I got to Niagara Falls at around 11pm. It was freeeeezing (literally below freezing temperature) and I didn't bring gloves, duh.
The American Falls and the bridge connecting USA/Canada
Absolutely gorgeous with the artificial lights they put on at night. It is quite magical, but also slightly gnarly in a way
Like a watery furnace, love it :)
They change the color of the lights every 10 minutes or so... so I stood there (no gloves, remember?) and took 3 pictures and put them together in photoshop for this composite color view.
Sometimes I wonder if all my effort really means anything, haha. But once I see a picture in my head I want it!
HDR works great for the crazy night scene here. The light trails makes it look like northern lights, very cool :)
As a side note, the mist rising from the falls hang around for a few minutes, then condense and rain/snow right back down. I got soaked walking through it, it's hmmm, invigorating?! More like ****ing freezing!
Behind the falls
Next up: Niagara Falls at sunrise, it's magical, I promise :)
