    This weekend our daughter moved into her first apartment alone and we went down so Dad could drive the moving truck and we could lend a hand. Miss Em has been working at a hotel beside Niagara Falls for a while now and her new place is a short walk to the river and falls. Despite that we had no intention to go to see the falls this time around.

    We were driving back to her place and I had my camera put away, her and I were just chatting and she asked if I wanted to drive past her work, it was just one street away, I said sure! Well as we crested this hill it took my breath away, I do believe my exact words were Holy ****! as I scrambled to get my camera out of the bag, she laughed and apologized for not warning me lol I was still set up from the drive down doing some slow shutter speed shots and I didn't have time to change anything, I got one shot off before we passed the pedestrian walkway. This is the first view of Niagara Falls as you crest the hill, I can't wait to go down for a visit!

    I know right! So cool! I so totally didn't see them up there, I didn't have time to actually see much, I just wanted to get the pedestrian bridge in lol I love the person on the bike with the.... wizard hat? on too :) (much easier to see zoomed in on the larger version on Flickr) Soooo much to find in this image.

    Yeah, that Niagara Falls is known to be sneaky. I like the person shooting a photo up on the footbridge.
