Exploring Prospect Point

I finally saw the falls while exploring Prospect Point. It was an overcast day, and thanks to social isolation, the park was very empty.

It was warm -- up in the sixties in March -- although much colder once we got closer to the falls.

I'll never get tired of taking photos of tree branches. And, once again, most of these photos are with my Holga DSLR lens.

I've never visited Niagara Falls State Park until recently, but it's obvious that the people are not visiting…

It's easy to practice social distancing when there's no one on the sidewalks. Empty benches and open views at least make for interesting photographs.

The view towards the main Prospect Point look out area. The mist of the top of falls almost obscures the Canadian side, almost.

The crest of the falls. It's so fast and loud, while also feeling still and serene.

I may take almost as many photos of the retro, coin operated binoculars as I do of the falls. I really love the way they look.

More splashing water over the crest. A burst of air gave me a serious wet willie while I was all focused on my camera.

This soft gray day combined with the Holga plastic lens and the movement of mist and falls makes for a dreamy, monochromatic photo.

At the top of the falls, the water rushes over the crest.

I do love winter trees. Their stark branches against the water and sky are especially appealing for me.

I did mention how much I love these coin operated binoculars.

As seen from the parking lot on the way in and out. The empty monument to consumerism. I seriously doubt that much of the "Made in America" store's products are actually made in America. Someday when it's open again, I'll check it out and report back.

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 make some extra cash. This is an Amazon affiliate link.
