Re: 3 views of Dark Harbor

The first and last are very attractive and well composed views Minnie.  The middle is important to give perspective to the others in this set.  You must have had a great trip judging by the images you have posted.

A couple pseudo night shots

I have been working with lighting in my photos. These are a couple of day shots to look like night

Re: Dave.

Hi Dave,

I've been watching telecasts of the C'wealth games from Glasgow and noticed the weather turned very wet during the last couple of days, but when it was good earlier in the competition it seemed perfect for both the athletes and those from far and wide that attended.

Really like your landscape shots too.

Cheers from Oz,

John.

Re: Niagara Falls

Sure gets cold in your part of the world Andrew but also very beautiful. I like your B &W shot it presents a strong tone of realism to the prevailing conditions.

Cheers Mate,

John

Very beautiful white clouds in the first Bruce.  I also like the IR images.

Re: Early Morning Rowing...

I'm not sure that would be first thing on my list for early morning, but ....  A fine looking place in any event and it would be enjoyable to sit near the shore and take it all in.

The American Falls taken from Niagara Falls Canada this past winter.

Andrew - just wonderful - I would love to see the falls in person!  To understand the scale - is the snow/ice in the foreground close to the falls or way in the foreground?

thanks for sharing,

Brent

Thanks for the comments.

Watched the closing ceremony last night which had a feature on Gold Coast where the next Games are to be held. Looks completely different to Glasgow and the weather should be much more reliable.

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.

Re: Thanks for the comments

Hope you were being facetious!  The traffic here is slow recently, better this week than last but it is summer (for us in the northern hemisphere) and people are busy.  I really did like both.  The mono is a little dark but it is suppose to be night and I think it works.
