Oh where to start? I took so many photos in Niagara Falls that it’s almost impossible to choose which ones to post. Well, I might as well start with the place that we frequented the most on our little mini vacation, and that was Fallsview Casino of course!! LOL
Actually, I was quite happily surprised that my hubby didn’t insist that we stay in the casino 24/7. After we had checked into our hotel room, we actually went down to see the falls (where I took most of my photos) and then we had supper at The Keg, which turned out to be the best restaurant meal I have had in a long time. After they rolled us out of The Keg because we were so full (ok, a bit of an exaggeration), we played the slots for quite a few hours, until I finally convinced Mike that we should take a romantic walk to see what the falls looked like at night. When you walk out behind Fallsview Casino Resort, the falls are right there. It was a beautiful night and the falls looked gorgeous, but when I turned around I realized there was an even more beautiful sight behind us – the casino lit up against the night sky.
Now, I think everyone will agree that night-time photography can be challenging, and often what looks pretty good on the camera doesn’t live up to your expectations on the computer screen. At the time I only had my little Canon point and shoot with me which I haven’t really experimented much with because I usually prefer my DSLR, but I started playing around and was quite surprised by the results. The first photo below is very bright while the second one is more subdued. Which one do you prefer?
Once back inside, I also had some fun taking pictures of the glass domed ceiling at the front entrance of the casino, and these are two of my favourites.
