Niagara Falls: Over the edge

This was my favorite photo from the outing. I had two objectives in this shot:

- The sky was far too overcast at dawn, so I only saw cold grey skies. About a half hour later, for a few minutes, an orange glow provided a touch of color in the distance. I had to be satisfied with this.

- I wanted to feature the scary edge over which Horseshoe Falls drops. I tried to achieve this by including quite a bit of the mostly featureless green water in the foreground. To make this just a bit less boring I also tried to include one of the ripples that would periodically form in the expanse.

Hopefully all of this comes across.
