It’s hard to fathom the scale of this place from these photographs but there are tiny avian specks in there – seagulls, actually – if you look very closely. The first image is layered and the second image is what the camera saw. This is the churning water at the bottom of a 165 foot drop.

Beautiful Karen. That colour! just gorgeous
Very fresh! I can feel the power..
Love the colors and mist only wish they were close to me so I could experience them firsthand.
Gorgeous, Karen. The contrast of color & form is exquisite.
Wow, how exciting!!
The best thing about this is, it’s typical you, a genuine K. McRae. Beautiful work, Karen!
So soft and beautiful. Water are magic and you have captured it in a great way!
again you captured the essence Karin
oh wow, can I press “like” at least – three times??? 🙂
I really like these! The palette is so soothing but there’s also so much energy.
And always you give us more to fathom. Spectacular!
Great perspective. Haven’t been to the falls in years.
These are truly great and totally original!
So much power Karen.. a power that should never be underestimated..
I ruined my first digital camera on the Maid fo the Mist tour. 🙂
Beautiful, powerful but also so calming… Great shots Karen.
This is the image, needing no manipulation, itself is in chaos =
hence, it shows the depth of order isn’t it.
Majesty personified! And so very very beautiful!
And the third image Is what you saw or felt Beautiful color
Oh, wonderful; Niagara Falls are majestic!
[I was there but only on the USA side because I forgot my passport at home, hehehe!]
Wonderful. Am I to believe there was some danger involved in taking these pictures?
Quite exceptional ctually.
perhaps a bit more amorphous than your usual work.
When you mentioned the size of the drop Karen, the photos took on another dimension. Superb.
Such a sensitive take on the power of falling water – superb capture Karen…
I feel icy droplets on my skin… lovely.
Nice. I wasn’t sure at first..it is The Falls.
great photos Karen – but also thanks for the link because I had no idea of the geography of the region. It is a different world and it is fantastic to see some parts of it through your eyes.
These are so otherworldly – they almost look symbolic. I wonder if that’s to do with the scale. Monstrous and beautiful.
I love the way the low contrast softens the colors and somehow enhances the watery quality.-
Stunning, so full of energy and emotion!
gorgeous, Karen. And, i hope you had some ice wine while you were there?!
Superb Karen !
Je ne parle pas anglais, désolée. J’adore cette série. Comme des peintures abstraites, dénuées de formes conventionnelles, vous nous emmenez en voyage au cœur de nos émotions. merci
I keep expecting to see similar landscapes or recognizing parts of your yard. You live in this natural wonderland and I want to explore it.
