A View from Below the Falls by taffy

A View from Below the Falls

First time I was ever on a boat on Niagara River -- getting amazingly close to the base of the falls (too close for a camera at one point!). It was majestic -- really had to convey the power of the roar from the falls, the spray of the mist, the birds flying about and calling out. We were so lucky to have a beautiful day with these white fluffy clouds too.
Indoor day today of meetings, so even more appreciative of the group outing that had been planned!
UPDATE: #1 on TT
Wow! I've been to the falls, but never THIS close!

Wonderful shot, the people at the top really give a sense of scale.

Wow, scarey but lovely! Fav

Oh my! What a view. The tiny people give such a sense of the size

I can imagine the thunderous sound they make as well as being a great sight!

The falls are so impressive. You get a nice sense of the power of the water in this.

Seeing those tiny people at the top really puts the power of this waterfall into perspective. What a great capture of the powerfulness. Beautiful colors, too! Hey, I thought you went on a work trip!
June 2nd, 2017  
Wow, very powerful. The people on the viewing platform look like ants and really give a sense of scale. fav.

Great POV with the people at the top, a real sense of scale.
June 2nd, 2017  
Looks so powerful. Who thinks to look at this and say, 'hey, I can go over that in a barrel'?!
June 2nd, 2017  
you really convey the power of these amazing falls

As Junko said the people at the top give this shot a sense of scale! Nicely captured and the spray shows the power. I have done the boat trip twice, it is hard to convey what is actually like in a photograph, because part of the power is from the roar of the water, and the spray of the water that you feel on your skin even when you are a distance away from the falls.

Great shot!
June 2nd, 2017  
Awesome capture. The Falls are so amazing and impressive.
June 2nd, 2017  
Powerful shot! Love those clouds and the spray coming off the falls.
June 2nd, 2017  
A Maid of the Mist shot, no doubt. This is a perfect photo that shows the power and real beauty of the water.

Oh, the people! Wow, Taffy.

Awesome picture and perspective.
June 2nd, 2017  
Beautiful shot
June 2nd, 2017  
Great capture of Niagara from the water! I did the boat trip a couple years ago. The thunder of the falls, the spray when you get in close and all the birds make it an experience to remember. In fact, i remember there was so much spray it was impossible to even get a shot until we were a distance away.
June 2nd, 2017  
Holy cow... what a powerful POV!
June 2nd, 2017

Fabulous POV Taffy! I'm so pleased you have done this as I remember vividly when I went on the boat 16 years ago! It's impossible to capture that feeling of power - it made me cry! Huge fav!

I've done this trip and it was amazing and scary too.
June 3rd, 2017  
I've never been on the boat, so this is great.
June 3rd, 2017  
You really captured the feeling of power from these magnificent falls. It must have been an amazing experience. Fav.
June 3rd, 2017  
Magnificent!!
June 3rd, 2017  
I remember that feeling. Instead of the camera, I was holding on to a kid though :) I have to revisit - now that he would be able to hold to the boat on his own!
June 3rd, 2017  
Fabulous capture! Fav
June 3rd, 2017  
Wow!
June 3rd, 2017  
That pov gives the viewer/s a very good idea of the scale, scope and might of the falls. Wonderful.
June 3rd, 2017  
You really get a sense of the magnitude, especially seeing the people. It puts everything in perspective.
June 3rd, 2017  
Sheer power.

Stunning photo, with so much energy. Fav
June 3rd, 2017  
great pov and scale.
June 3rd, 2017  
Incredible - it certainly does convey the sense of power of the water - and the people at the top give it scale.
June 3rd, 2017  
Fabulous capture and comp. I wish I would have known. I'm less than seven hours from Niagara Falls by bike! Less than two hours by car.
June 3rd, 2017  
Wow, what I would give to be there! Huge fav.
June 3rd, 2017  
@bill_fe It would be fun to meet here sometime. This time, I'm here for our leadership retreat, so going on the boat was all about bonding opportunities and not photography. It's an amazing area for photography so I'd love to come back!
June 3rd, 2017  
Wonderful capture...Fav
June 3rd, 2017

WOW WEE!!! This is gorgeous :) FAV
June 4th, 2017  
Lovely image. Brings back memories of a trip we made over to the Falls when I was 50. Then we had all the fun of walking across the Rainbow Bridge with our suitcases, walking from Canada to America! Hated the town but just couldn't get enough of looking at this glorious set of waterfalls and listening to the roar of the water. You made me smile.
June 4th, 2017  
Wow, this really conveys the power of the water, the spray, and the size (with those little people up top). Amazing shot.
June 5th, 2017  
What a gorgeous photo, Taffy. Lucky you to see it in person. I can imagine the power of the falls. Never have been there but have been lucky to see amazing photos on 365. Just read the first comment and looked again. Wow, it is huge compared to the people standing above. FAV
June 6th, 2017  
I can feel the intense power!! Also love the greenish color you captured of the water!!
June 6th, 2017  
So very beautiful with the puffy white clouds and blue sky above the powerful falls.
