Exploring Goat Island and Three Sisters Islands

My first trip to Niagara Falls State Park was a quick visit to Goat Island and Three Sisters Islands. Four tiny islands at the top of Niagara Falls that are connected by historic bridges.

It's winter so the crisp blue skies and tiny red berries were rare bursts of color on a gray wintery day.

Although there isn't dramatic drops, these fast moving, building waves of rapids rushing towards the fall are really beautiful and can be seen from lots of great vantage points at Goat Island and the Three Sisters Islands.

No idea if this is modern or historical. I do love some rusty metal.

I'll never tire of taking pictures of winter trees. My first roll of film in college was black and white of trees in snow taken in Chicago. They were very gray because I hadn't learned how light meters work ;)

The mist in the distance! The crest of the falls -- the ultimate destination of these fast-moving rapids. In the distance is the Canadian city of NIagara Falls. Next week I'll share pictures of the actual falls from Prospect Point. Stay tuned.

Gear wise, I'm using a Holga 60mm f/8 lens that works on my DSLR. The dreamy softness and vignetting from the plastic lens seems appropriate on this wintery day. Right now it's my second favorite lens. My all time favorite being my Nikkor 1055 f/2.5 that I've had since college. I may not have most of my studio here, but I do have a good collection of cameras, some bookbinding tools, and the basics for keeping up in my journals. If you want to get me some "essential" supplies, I have a "HOT STUDIO" list on Amazon linked below.

I truly do love this Holga lens for my DSLR. Mine's the Nikon version, but they make it compatible for most bodies. I like having the dreamy Holga look with the convenience of DSLR.

Full disclosure, I'm trying something new over here to see make some extra cash. This is an Amazon affiliate link.
