Niagara Falls, Ontario

After waiting to get down the elevator to the tunnels behind the falls, you line-up again to get your few seconds at one of these openings right behind the raging falls. Most people take selfies or family-portrait selfies. This image really doesn’t do justice to the full drama and fury of the water cascading past, right in front of you.


A lot of time in Niagara Falls as a tourist is spent waiting in long lines (line-ups to Canadians, queues to the English). Thousands of people are queued up, waiting to make use of 1 or 2 ordinary-sized elevators. Click any image to see them all larger
