Story Behind the Photo: Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls Illuminated at night

The Niagara River forms the border between New York state and Canada, and is technically a ‘strait’ that connects Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. The most famous feature of the river is the Niagara Falls which is actually comprised of three separate waterfalls. The American and Bridal Veil Falls are on the US side and Horseshoe Falls is on the Canadian side. To view the falls from the US, you’ll visit the Niagara Falls State Park, established in 1885 making it the oldest state park in the country . Each evening, the falls are illuminated by a changing combination of white and colored lights that give Niagara an entirely different look. This photo was taken from the Niagara Falls State Park in New York with a view of the American Falls, a portion of Horseshoe Falls in the distance, and the skyline of the city of Niagara Falls, Ontario Canada.Click here to buy a print and view the entire collection
