Niagara Falls Winter 2014

Niagara Falls Winter 2014


I wanted to finish my four seasons picture series of Niagara Falls before we departed south. That meant late December, early January as we would be long gone before February arrived. Due to personal concerns, and then weather issues, Hubby and I didn’t make it up to the Falls until January 4th. It was a gorgeous, but cold day. The temperature was hovering around 20°, and right near the Falls it was much, much colder than that.



The water sprays off the Falls all year long. You don’t really notice it though, except in the winter. Not only does it make a less than 20° day feel even colder, the spray freezes on the tree limbs, and even over the viewfinders!! Fortunately there was a little bit of snow on the ground (which the grounds crew had beautifully manicured so enough snow, but not too much, was removed), so no worries about a slick sidewalk.

I put the photographs in another slider. The larger pictures of the slides are below. If you look at those large slides, you can see chunks of ice flowing over the Falls, some ice forming on the spill-over itself, as well as the ice formations on the Canadian side, and at the base of the Falls. One of the coolest pictures in my opinion, is that of the frozen viewfinders!!

You will also notice that the platform overlooking the Falls doesn’t have one person on it! I doubt I will ever see that again in my life. Just as we were departing, several tourist buses had deposited a few tour groups. Whew, perfect timing!

All my photographs are taken on the American side, and my main focus is the American Falls.

  6. Lovely pictures, we were there a very long time ago and I remember it was such a great trip.
    I can imagine how cold it gets in winter time.

  7. On the bucket list!

  8. Fantastic photos, I so want to make the trip, I will say never thought about going in the winter but might be an option since I love your photos.

  9. How absolutely spectacular! Although I just can’t imagine anything so cold!! Xx

  10. Absolutely love the pictures! I’ll be in New York City for the new year and was thinking of taking a flight to Buffalo to visit the falls. Thinking the first week of January. From the looks of it, it’s a winter wonderland around that time, would you recommend going during the winter season?

    • Yvette last year was unusual with how cold it was in January. I don’t recall ever being that cold, and I live in the area! On the other hand, it was simply beautiful. It is nothing you will ever forget, that is for certain!

      Have a great time!

      Ann
