Albion Falls

A five-minute exposure smooths out the edges to create this silky vision of Albion Falls, near Hamilton, Ontario (Canada). This is the sort of place that just begs for barefoot kids to play in it during the summer.

Hamilton calls itself the City of Waterfalls, with over 100 waterfalls within the city’s boundaries. I think I may have to add it to my travel list, both for a waterfall tour (which looks like it could take a couple of weeks) and to photograph what has to be one of the coolest city populations signs ever:

There’s another little waterfall about an hour’s drive from Hamilton that is also on my list…

    Gosh, that little waterfall looks like it is in the back of beyond , a hidden gem, do you think many people know about it?

    About an hour before sundown we came to the Singing Waters.

    “Cascades” is a weak word. Upstream, downstream, everywhere you looked,
    you saw waterfalls–big ones thirty or fifty feet high, little ones a
    mouse could have jumped up, every size in between. Terraces and
    staircases of them there were, smooth water green from rich foliage
    overhead and water white as whipped cream as it splashed into dense foam.

    — Robert Anson Heinlein, Glory Road

    I wonder if this was inspired by that place.

    I can’t believe a place like that exists! Amazing!

    My Montanan husband like that picture of the storm, btw.

    When you do make it to Niagara, I’d also recommend heading a bit further south to Letchworth State Park. Multiple waterfalls, 19 mile long gorge with 600 foot high cliffs, Glen Iris Inn, and numerous trails that were created by the CCCs. Early June in mid-week and you can basically have the park to yourself! Niagara is absolutely incredible in its volume and power but unfortunately the surrounding area has been commercialized; Letchworth is a hidden gem that allows you to enjoy several grand falls in a more natural surrounding.
    And as always, love where you take us on wallpaper monday !

    In the paper today, google Booming Ice Cavern, incredible pics of a newly discovered ice cavern in the Rockies.
