Perfect...(but what else would it be? :) What a contrast between the heavy and cold dreary winter's sky and the burst of low golden sunshine captured at the end of the road. You have an amazing eye with the patience of a saint to wait for this perfect moment - or you have one very generous photo angel guiding you and riding on your shoulder - think it's a combo of both - :) #9209891

Description

1/2000, F22. ISO1250
Cave of the Winds building, Niagara Falls, USA.
This is the entrance to the Cave of the Winds where you ride an elevator 175 feet deep to the Niagara Gorge. Clad in rain ponchos and special footwear, you walk the wooden walkways that lead to the Hurricane Deck which brings you just 20 feet from the Bridal Veil Falls. You will get wet!
