City of Niagara Falls Skyline USA & Canada

Few pics of the city skyline of Niagara Falls, USA & Canada. taken from my room on the 17th floor of the Seneca Niagara Casino. Practiced one using the panorama scene selection. The camera was set on a table near the window and using the 2 sec delay for exposure.

On the pano, you can see the mist from the Falls. On the second image, the bright white lights near the left center, are used to illuminate the Falls at night and change color throughout the evening.

In case you're wondering ... wasn't a good night at the slots

Nice! I wondered how it looked from the other side... when we went, we stayed at the Embassy Suites on the Canada side (tallest one on the left side of your pano, poking out of the mist). The hotel you were in, IIRC, had some interesting lights mimicked the waterfall. I didn't get any good photos of that - that was back before I had much idea what I was doing... they ended up way too blurry. The lights are cool -- they light up both sets of falls. I snapped a pic of the sign talking about them -- just reread it. There are 3 of them in the gorge facing the American falls and 18 of them in a tower shining on the horseshoe falls. Each one is 30 inches in diameter and 390 million candle power. They started lighting the falls up in the 1920s. Now I want to go again!

The view of the Falls is definitely better from the Canadian side. You do get much more closer from the US side though. I used to do both sides in the same evening, but crossing the border during summer just takes too long.
