A Pool at the Top of Crystal Falls, Nova Scotia

In album NovaScotiaLandscapes

It's a bit of a hike and a climb to get up here, but worth it to see the top of the falls and get a different perspective. These pools gather the water at the top before they plunge down the main falls.

Hidden Waterfall 2

In album NovaScotiaLandscapes (68 photos)

I returned last week to my favourite hidden waterfall in the woods. It's beginning to look interesting with the ice building up and was still accessible as there was not much snow under the trees..

It is quite amazing the advances that have been made in digital photography since the days when I took this picture on my Canon D30, Canon’s first DSLR camera to be released, sporting a massive 3 MP sensor!

At the time I was shooting in jpg (ouch) as I was not yet aware of the advantages of raw images. I became so, shortly afterwards. 

This was my first (and only so far) trip to Niagara Falls. The falls that you see in the distance are on the US side, while the Maid of the Mist is heading toward the Canadian falls which are to my right and behind where I was standing.
