This was taken couple days before Christmas from the Canadian side. I wonder how the same sunset would look like from the US side? I think you would see the sun with the Horse Shoe Falls from the US side, not just the projection of it on the mist from it. As always, higher resolution image is better to enjoy.
Thanks for all the nice comments on my last post from New York City!

You sure have some great shots. You must travel a lot. Great for us to be able to share your photos.
thanks, not as much as I like, but every chance I get.
It is a beautiful shot.
This is really classy – love it.
Awesome! Great Shot.
The clouds look like they’ve merged into the magnificence of the waterfall! Amazing!
Not a regular view of the Falls but it works so well……love the colour
The first thing I said seeing this photograph was: OH MY GOD! BEAUTIFUL!
it’s so beautiful, I wonder was it by chance, or you came and went many times to capture it at that certain time…?
it was by chance. I went there to see sunset and fireworks, but really didn’t know what to expect at that time of year. I was walking away from the Falls looking back, taking some photos, then this tree came into the frame. I like how it contrasts with the sky and the mist in pink is nice too.
its very colourful and beautiful…….
it’s a beautiful chance 😀
good shot 😉
Gorgeous Scene. Lovely Shot.
Wow, stunning shot!
Fantastic! Great shot.
The mist seems to be traveling upwards towards the pinkish clouds. Beautiful image, Dmitrii.
thanks, yep, it is literally travels up and dissapears
Absolutely gorgeous, Dmitrii. The light is stunning- great composition and sharp image. Thank you!
Spectacular, Great capture, If only I half of your skill I would happy.
Oh Canada! Thanks for the shot from the Tourist Trap Capital Of Canada, Niagara Falls! 🙂
Great color! Good job!
Fantastic shot. Like your others too . puts my photos to shame.
Love the colour and clarity! This could inspire a few paintings. Thanks for sharing. Shelley
Gorgeous shot & great processing. Also, a truly heroic effort at cropping out the surrounding tourist traps 😉
thanks! No cropping out in post processing. Framed it to exclude those tourist traps at the time of shooting 🙂
Aw! You know I love this one! (Well I love all of your pics, but I love colorful clouds.) 😀
Wow!!! A really well composed shot… Cant wait to see this wonder in reality!!!
Wow! A beautiful image!
Love the changing color of the water spray! Very pretty!
Really fantastic shot!
I love this–very special!
I have some cousins in Niagara Falls and keep trying to make it back out that way. I haven’t been there in nine years or so. You captured the falls beautifully here. Love being inspired by your blog!
Wow! This is stunning …
I used to live on the River Road as you’re walking away from the Falls, I grew up there. Your photo took me right back home. Thank you for sharing it!
wow! That’s amazing! I went there last spring break on a road trip and it was still a little icy… I missed out! That is brilliant.
Your photos are wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing them. My blog is http://www.themuseisworking.com
Stunning! I love the color in the clouds.
Wonderful colors, scenic–I’d like to camp near there. 🙂
This is stunning!!
Thanks for sharing.
Great photos 🙂
Stunning, I haven’t been there for a long time but it always amazes me. Great shot and lighting.
I love the way you can see the sunset colors in the mist and the clouds. The view from the Canadian side seems to have more impact than on the American side. Next time I go I’ll have to check out the Canadian side too!
This beyond amazing 🙂
Terrific shot! The cloud of mist the the center, reflecting the sunset colors, looks beautiful.
Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog. I LOVE this photograph of Niagara Falls! I’m excited to see more of your photography. Thanks for sharing.
Excellent Photo! Waterfall mist merging with the cloud is what caught my eye, almost illusional yet breathtaking at the same time.
Oh forget to say thank you for taking time to visit my humble little old blog:) I do appreciate you doing so
Love the way the water mist blends into the clouds with the reflection from the sun – beautiful shot
what lovely colors, your photography is really great…
This is pretty amazing! I love the colors!
A wonderful crisp, clear inspiring photo!
WOW!! That is absolutely gorgeous! I love it!
Really NICE!! Gorgeous view!
Amazing colors! I live by Niagara Falls, and every time I go by, it looks completely different – but always beautiful! I encourage you next time to visit the American side, I’m sure you could get amazing photos of the gorge as well!
Looks like a fire burning in the middle of the water. Beautiful!
Great photo. Love the composition.
Beautiful motion and light.
Total magic, you have captured this image perfectly, absolutely stunning. Cheers Callie
This is certainly a beautiful winter evening image. I’m Canadian, and I’ve shot the Horseshoe Fall from both the Canadian and US sides; day and night. Both sides have spectacular views all along the Niagare Gorge, with and without the modern architecture considered. This region is definitely a wonder of the world. I wish everyone, everywhere could see the natural aspects of this place at least once in their lifetimes.
It looks like you made this shot from alongside the Niagara Parkway, roughly midway between Clifton Hill and the Table Rock tourism facility. To keep the guardrail out og your shot, it looks like climbed over it and crouched on the grass of one of the few places where you can physically do that but are still in great peril (unfortunately, a young exchange student from China or Taiwan did fall to her death last year).
The vector of your shot is south-by-southeast. To include the Horseshoe and the sun in a single groundlevel shot from the American side, you’d have to be on the western side of Goat Island and facing west. You wouldn’t be able to see too much whitewater but you’d definitely be able to image the curved countour of the cataract’s crest. There is always a Niagara Parks official there to watch for anyone who might sadly try to jump into the falls; not that they could necessarily prevent an attempt. The Americans placed their guardrail so close to the water’s edge and so low in height, that anyone could step over it and on their way down the Horseshoe within 3 seconds. The good aspect of how their guardrailing is setup is that you don’t have to try to breech it in order to get a unhindered shot of the crest (so you don’t have to put your life in danger for the shot). Being that you’d be facing due west, It would have to be an evening shot in order to include the sun. I believe that spring and autumn, when the north and south poles are at 90-degrees to the sun’s ecliptic and; therefore likely to keep the evening sun in frame with the crest, is likely to be your best time to try fpr the composition you’re after.
I hope it works out for you. I’d like to see it if you go for it.
Beautiful shot, although I hope you don’t endanger your life. I once hopped over a guard rail to get “the perfect” shot of the Grand Canyon, but my kids have never forgiven me…25 years later! Take care of yourself, you may want to be a grandma like me some day!
Hi Kathi, no lifes were endagered while taking this photo. I didn’t clime over the rail, you can take it from the pedestrain side. thanks for stopping by!
Great! So glad to hear it. Thanks for your visit, too!
Very good shot Dmitri
Awesome! I must go there someday too! Thank you for sharing with us.

Beautiful Picture. It reminds me my trip to Niagara Falls.
You do amazing work! Love this one!
This is great!
Wow that is a great shot

That picture is gorgeous! Nice work, sir!
What a beautiful photo! I had to peak because I was recently in Niagara Falls and I took a few photos I plan to share soon but they are not nearly as beautiful as this!
WOW… amazing shot. Thanks for stopping by my blog and looking forward to following yours. Have a great day.
Great! thank you for visiting my site…
Love Niagara Falls, we stop every time we visit Toronto. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
like this point of view with the cloud
I mean mist and clouds, also the subtle colours are great.
Magnificent ! great shots.Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Beautiful shot, really lovely
Beautifull Shades, Nice capture
I’m in awe of this photo!!
It’s people as gifted as you who spoil it for people as insecure as me. As soon as I get satisfied with the quality of my budget lens, you come along and get me depressed. It’s not like I’m going to stop following your blog because I love your artistry. But please, leave some room for improvement so I don’t feel so bad!
I really enjoy your pictures and your choice of where the focus should be. Hope to do as well someday. John Tucker
Dmitrii, So glad you looked at my posting so I could find yours. The picture of the Falls is wonderful. Hope to see so many more of what you post. Most of my best shots are found under my garden and Lake Michigan blog, http://www.gardensatwaterseast.blogspot.com Do stay in touch. I think we might enjoy one another. Jack
Impressive! My first thought was an explosion. You’re really good at the art of avoiding the signs of ‘civilization’ here.
Wow! I’ve always wanted to go there. Amazing shot! I’m so jealous that you got to go there, and of your photography skills. ^_^
Just beautiful…post any time to my face book we love these kinds of photos especailly me 🙂
Great photo. I love the composition, with the tree on the right and the mist rising in the centre. The colours are so beautiful, especially the pinkish colour to the clouds as they catch the setting sun. The bank on the right makes it feel as if you could almost step inside the photo and start walking towards the falls.
Dimitrii: This is an extraordinary image…really outstanding…everything is spot on!
Wish I could all my pix to look as good as yours 🙁
the clouds are stunning!
Thanks for visiting my new blog. I love your photos.
Goodness! You really seize many chances to travel! Good work!
And thanks for stoppin by my blog.
WOW!! Stunning picture! The lighting is just spectacular!
Great shot!! Always tough to get “different” shots of Niagara Falls. 🙂
Great eye. Well done!
Absolutely lovely! Thanks for sharing
I love this shot, Dmitri! You’ve captured an essence of Niagara Falls that not many visitors appreciate. I was fortunate to be born here and have just moved back after many years away. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Absolutely magical! I am a Canadian who lives in Chicago. I use to take regular school trips to Niagara Falls and did not have as much appreciation for them as I do now. Your photo reminds me of how lucky we are to have such an amazing natural beauty! Thank you! I am so glad to be following your blog! Wonderful work! Cher xo
