Niagara Winter River by pdulis

Niagara Winter River

The Niagara River is a connecting channel between the two Great Lakes, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. The startling green colour of the Niagara River is due to the erosive power of water as it picks up dissolved salts and “rock flour,” primarily from the limestone bed but also from the shales and sandstones under the limestone cap at the falls.
So enjoying these Winter images and information. I have stayed in that hotel in the background!

@will_wooderson - This was taken from the observation plaza - the other photos were shot towards the falls - this was shot the opposite direction from the same place - hope this helps

Loving the description of the reason for the colour, I have been told that looking at the turquoise waters in NZ but never took it in properly. This looks an amazing place to visit.

That's the old hydro plant, correct? I spent much of my youth "getting dragged" to the Falls, as my grandparents lived on the NY side. It seemed that every trip involved visiting the landmark, and as a kid I grew rather immune to the sights and wonders. But a few years ago I returned on one of my motorcycle adventures and had a much greater appreciation for this incredible natural wonder. Your photos have enhanced that appreciation even more and opened my eyes to angles and views I never even realized existed. Thanks so much for posting these.

@stray_shooter - thanks Ron - you are right - The collapsed building over the snow mound is whats left of the old Schoellkopf power station which collapsed in 1956 - quite a story behind this
