Description

Horseshoe Falls is the Canadian stake of the famous Niagara Falls and most photographs of this spectacular landmark tend to emphasize a broad, sweeping view of the scene. But when I visited in early April 2014, the freezing mist blasting off the falls was too oppressive to spend much time on the ground seeking out different perspectives. Instead, the most compelling shot I made was taken during morning twilight from the window of my hotel room, more than 30 stories in the air. I framed the falls very tightly, removing all context and sense of scale in order to impart an abstract quality to the scene and emphasize the various textures of the rapids, falls and looming mist.
