and away we go. by intricate-illusion and away we go. by intricate-illusion
Being here makes you feel so minuscule, with the roar of the falls and the constant churning of water. When you look over and lean over the railing to watch, you get dizzy just looking down. For a moment you feel like you could fall over into it.

Critique encouraged. :aww:

I love to see the water on this picture. And with the grass in the corner it's somehow hard to recognize the distance between the ship and the camera. :)

Niagara Falls is pretty extreme: I got soaked, my camera got soaked, it was the wettest water ever! And noisy, as you say...

Take it easy! :D
