Photographer's Note

In 2002, I had a pleasure to present my PhD thesis on a scientific conference in Toronto and in addition to seeing that beautiful city I had an opportunity for a trip to Niagara Falls. For those who don’t know, Niagara Falls is a group of three waterfalls: American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls (both in this photo) which are on the American side of the border and larger Canadian Falls called also Horseshoe Falls which are mostly on the Canadian side (not seen here, they are on the right from the scene). My photo reportage from this amazing location was one of the biggest disappointments. I took plenty of photos but because I was too close to the falls the mist has affected most of my photos. In the result, most of my photos were overexposed with the bright mist and/or not sharp due to some water on my lens. Because these were pre-digital times, I was only able to discover it after coming back home and developing the photos. I suppose it is one more illustration of the benefits of digital photography which allows you to check result, adjust and repeat if necessary.

This picture was taken from the more impressive Canadian side but looking towards the American Falls. You can see here two boats. Maid of the Mist is a boat tour which takes you as close as possible to the falls. I had a pleasure to be on such boat as well.
