PhotoStories 14: Niagara Falls


PhotoStories 14.        Each of photos has its own story. Especially the one you get from the plane. We offer to you a new series of PhotoStories taken by the USA 2016 expediton. Today story of the Niagara Falls photo.



To make a photo of Niagara Falls from the air is not so easy. The main problem is that the falls are located just on the border between Canada and USA and the airspace is somewhat complex. Both the countries are quite strict about flying over the border.

In addition, there are a lot of helicopters flying low so it is safer to stay above them. So there are quite complex procedures which needs to be studied and followed if one wants to fly over the Niagara Falls and make a photo like this one.

However, we had no choice as it seems impossible not to take a photo of Niagara Falls when you fly around the USA as we did in 2016.
