Into the Fury
© 2012 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott
This image conveys the sense of the fury that the Maid of the Mist boats regularly face as they enter the basin at the foot of the Horseshoe Falls. You can see the decks crammed with people below, and that gives you a sense of the scale of this massive torrent of water falling in a full half circle. Beware, this image gives you a little of the "going over the edge" feel.
