'Twas REALLY cold when I snapped this the other day. (About 15 degrees and that freezing mist adds to the chill.) Stayed less than 10 minutes. Next time I visit, I'll have to dress warmer.
If you're ever in the Niagara Falls area in winter, the falls is really a magical spot to shoot. Rainbows are frequent (all seasons) and a coating of thick, white ice from the mist often coats the trees, adding to the beauty.

Thank you all for looking and the wonderful comments this morning!
~♥~Blessings, Lisa

Oh my goodness, Lisa. This is the most gorgeous photo I have seen of these falls. They appear completely natural in this frigid setting, and the subtle rainbow just makes it better.

I want to thank you ALL for such wonderfully uplifting words! Here's another interesting site you'll find by the Falls in winter. Ice-covered spectator's viewers (I don't know what they're really called) -- they resemble faces and are pretty funny-looking.
Stay warm and be safe!
Blessings, Lisa
