Water power – a close-up of Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls close-up water power

It’s hard to describe the power (and sound) of this much water going over a falls! Niagara is the most powerful waterfall in North America, with an average of almost 4 million cubic feet (110,000 cubic meters) of water falling over the crest line every minute! Niagara Falls is composed of two major sections separated by Goat Island: Horseshoe Falls, the majority of which lies on the Canadian side of the border, and American Falls on the American side. (You are currently looking a section of the American Falls.)

NightScapes is an uplifting video by Royce Bair, featuring one Milky Way after another! Photographed in the Grand Tetons, Bryce Canyon, and Arches National Parks. These are real photos, taken with one exposure, albeit, many of the landscapes are “light-painted” by Royce and his team of night workers.
