Eugenia Falls near Flesherton, Ontario is a tall, but fairly narrow waterfall, as it does not usually discharge a large amount of water except in the Spring. The development of a nearby hydroelectric power plant diverts much water away from the falls, and I would imagine that the dry summer that we had this year has not helped with the flow of water either. Eugenia Falls was ‘discovered’ by a Mr. Brownlee in 1852, and was the site of a short-lived gold rush until the ‘gold’ turned out to be pyrite (fool’s gold). Surveyors named the falls after Empress Eugenia, who was a consort of Napolean III.
Even though there is not a huge rush of water over the falls, it is still an incredibly beautiful sight, and the Fall colours simply heightened the beauty. I know these shots are all very similar, but I decided to post them all because I couldn’t choose a favourite :).
While the waterfall was beautiful, the view in the other direction was spectacular as well!
