Niagara Whirlpool



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

The Niagara River below the falls rushes through a fairly narrow gorge at fantastic speeds. Then, about three miles below the falls, the river makes a 90-degree turn, which results in a fascinating whirlpool. The picture above was taken from the top of the gorge. The whirlpool can be seen to the left of center in the picture. The boat in the picture is pointing toward the top of the whirlpool.

The boat seems like heading towards danger, which in fact must not. People in there must have a lot of fun.

Okay. Now I have got to plan a trip to Niagra Falls for our next adventure. This photo is amazing.

That's a wonderful view you shot of that gorge! I'm not sure I would want to be in a boat so near that huge eddy..might become a very interesting boat ride!

The water is absolutely the most rich shade of teal, and it's a lovely shot of nature "doing her thing!"
