Niagara Falls Panorama
August 16, 2004
This panoramic mosaic of Niagara Falls (a combination of 3 different photos "stitched" together) was taken from the top of the Skylon Tower in Niagara Falls, Ontario in early April of this year. On the right is the larger of the three falls composing the Niagara Falls on the Niagara River, the Canadian or Horseshoe Falls, which is here obscured by mist. The American Falls is on the left as is the much smaller Bridal Veil Falls. Each second approximately 600,00 gallons of water flows over the Horseshoe Falls, and approximately 150,000 gallons per second flows over the American Falls.
