Artist's Description

Please view larger.

Small islands dot the brink of the Horseshoe (Canadian) Fall at Niagara, & in winter, their vegetation becomes crusty & gnarly with ice from the omnipresent spray. This photo was taken from one of the small pedestrian bridges that connect the Three Sisters Islands, & one plop from this span means a large & cold plop into Oblivion. Of course one could get hung up in this tangled ice-web, for good or ill, but I don’t recommend trying it. The Horseshoe is the larger, curved cataract, a bit of which can be seen to the left, just out of the mist. It plunges about 180 feet as it carries water from Lake Erie, about 20 miles to the south, to Lake Ontario, 5 miles to the north.
