Hi All,

I was ready to chuck my 24-120VR lens until I viewed a few images from my recent voyage about the 'Maid of the Mist VII :shock: :

Breathtaking!

The ride lasts less than 20 minutes yet takes your breath away. Hope you get a chance to experience this incredible view someday! :D

It would have been fun though, throwing a lens into the falls, wouldn't it? ;)

These are great Crystall! Even more here than in the lens lust thread! The second one really gets the majesty of the place. Although I have sworn off the east, I do hope to get to see this place sometime. Hopefully I'll still have my 24-120vr!

Very nice series of images :) Looks like you had a great time. Did you use anything to protect your camera from the water mist ?

Beautiful shots Crystall. The detail in the water as it just drops over the falls is great, and you've done an excellent job of holding the highlights in the foam.

I might mention that I was on the Maid of the Mist about 50 years ago (probably not the same boat ;-)), but I didn't have my D2H with me at the time. :lol:

Very well done.

Crystall, what a wonderful tour this must have been! You've really captured the feeling of being there. Thanks for taking us along for the ride.

P.S. Sorry to be such a dummy, but I don't know what location this is.

Crystall don't chunk your lens, if you have a favorite place near home to take pictures, take only
one lens at a time and test it with all kind of subjects. You can go back another day and take pictures of the same subjects with another lens that way you will know which one to use and when. You can repeat that with all your lenses.

The last three are the one I like the most. The one with the ballon give a nice touch.

Thank You All for your kind comments. It was a very memorable trip. I hope to return to the Falls in two years. I also have a new respect for the 24-120mm VR lens.

Virginia,

Those images were captured with a D70 and a 24-120mm VR lens aboard the 'Maid of the Mist VII', Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.


Robert,

I kept my camera under the blue ponchos provided by the tour. I tried to pull it out from under the poncho at opportune moments to capture some of the more breathtaking scenes. I used my husband's towel to keep it dry when we entered the mistiest portion of the ride. My camera also remained relatively dry because I was on the lower deck. I probably would not recommend using your equipment on the top deck. You are guaranteed to get soaked.
