Brent: Two more images to show scale

The ice build up is relatively close to the falls, but not right at the water drop.  There is much more at the American falls than at the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side.  At the bottom of the American Falls there is a large build up of rock that has fallen off the face of the falls over many years.  The mist freezes on the rocks when it is cold enough and the ice build up starts.  The uninterupted cold spell of the past winter caused the large build up visible in this image.  It has been many years since this has occurred to this extent.

I have included two more images here to give you an idea of the scale.  The Falls drop is 165 ft.  The vertical image includes Bridal Veil Falls and to its left, the American Falls.  You can see the space between the ice and the face of the falls there.  The horizontal view shows both the American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls.  I did not crop the horizontal image so that you would get a better idea of scale.
