The first two are the American Falls, the third are the Horseshoe Falls. It'* quite a spectacle this time of year to see the ice forms around the Falls. This year it'* unusual for there to be so much ice still around in March.

For those who can't come to see them this time of year enjoy!

Notice I was in a Tow Zone.......hence "Wifey" stayed in the car in case a Cop came by.......by the way that building in the background was the Niagara Parks Police station!

Never had a problem with the tinted plate cover(*) which I have front and back on both my cars.

Spectacular! I've never been there. I went right through Niagara when I picked up my bonnie from Tamara in Toronto, but it was 3am. Couldn't see a thing. Then I had to get back, which was the opposite direction of the Falls.

Oh, and very nice shot of the Bonnie, as well.
