On my recent trip to Canada, of course the family took me to Niagara Falls, and it was as stunning as you'd expect. Of all the photos I took I think this one gives the best impression of its power .
This photo is the first one I took, showing the cloud of spray which is visible from quite a distance.
Surprisingly it was very quiet - I had been expecting thunder - but all that falling water made me glad I had my son to hang onto.
Further downstream is a strange place where the river swirls into a whirlpool before making a complete right turn.
And of course there has to be a commercial side to all this scenery - we drove through the "Entertainment" section just to have a look!
