    I hate to be the whiny correcter but that is horseshoe falls and the pic is upside down (if your using north as the top). Really interesting to see in person the sound of all that water falling is amazing.

    If you ever get to go to Niagara Falls, go on the Maid of the Mist boat ride.. It takes you right into the middle of the falls that you see in the picture.. You get so wet (they give you ponchos) and if you`re at the front of the boat and look into the falls, it looks like you`re surrounded by walling water. It really is beautiful.. I went there with my boyfriend on Canada day.. Its pretty cheap too, 15$ each for the 30 minute boat trip! You spend about 5-10 minutes in the middle of the falls :)

    nsh9 - What do you think the Horseshoe Falls is part of? It is one of the falls that makes up Niagara Falls. It is the most recognized of the Falls and if you do a google image search 99% of the pictures it brings up will be of the Horseshoe falls. So I am not sure what you are correcting here.

    This is not a pic of only the Canadian falls, or horseshoe, it is all three including the American falls. I was kinda thrown off by the pic seeing it is upside down. did ya know it is illegal to go over the falls? if you happen to live through the ordeal, you are arrested...makes me wanna try it ;)

    This is image was most likely obtained from a high-altitude airplane. Because of the obvious tilt of the camera (compare it to the image of the falls on Google Earth) I would say it is probably not a Digital Orthophoto Quarter-Quadrangle (DOQQ). Whatever the case, it is definitely not satellite imagery. Satellite imagery is rarely ever in "true color." Satellites use a variety of active and passive remote sensing techniques (other than the visible spectrum) to acquire imagery. Most high-altitude photographs come from specially equipped aircraft that fly (depending on the detail needed in the image). For instance, a 1m resolution DOQ is typically photographed from an altitude of about 6100m.

    But why go into space, and then zoom in to take the pic...
    when you could just float up that high holding a baggie full of steam, or something, and take a few snapshots?

    For more information on DOQQs and aerial photography go to USGS Terraserver. You can find aerial photographs of pretty much anywhere in the US from here.

    BTW...you can access satellite imagery at Terraserver.com. It`s a good site with lots of free stuff, but to get the real goodies, you have to buy a membership. I did the 7-day membership a while back and got enough imagery to mess around with for the rest of my life in that time.

    When we were younger and there wasn`t as much fencing around it like today we`d have tons of fun poking the ice at the top in the spring until it fell down. You can`t do it anymore, but if you`re lucky you can see it when the large build-ups of ice melt and start crashing down in huge chunks.

    Yeah...I live about two blocks from that picture and that is not from space. It is however probably from one of Rudy Heifen`s helicopters. He`s the guy that flies over the Fall all the time.

    someone needs to post the entirety of the falls. this only shows the canadian side. the american side is where it`s at. (that`s the side most people ride down the falls-the other side is a bit too dangerous). Intereting tidbit: only 10% of the water from the niagara river flows over the american side, the rest flows over the canadian side.
