We just returned from a wonderful week in Ontario. We entered Canada from the Buffalo area, and got to experience Niagara Falls for the first time. The massive, rushing waters were incredible. I had to use both lenses to capture the depth and close up aspects that were so thrilling to behold. The specks at the top right of the first photo are boats carrying people to the base of the falls.
The weather was a little cold and rainy, but provided the conditions to experience the rainbow over the falls. We took the tunnels tour of the Journey behind the Falls, and got quite soaked. We decided, already being chilled to the bone, to pass on the Lady of the Mist boat ride. On the return trip to the airport we saw the falls from the U.S. side, and the sun provided a clearer vista.
I am always amazed at seeing such awesome wonders that God has created. Those experiences fill me with gratitude that we have a Creator of wonders, yet we are each significant to the God who created the universe.
Stop and consider God's wonders.
