Niagara Falls is probably one of the most breathtaking places in North America. It is so marvelously beautiful that every tourist frantically takes photos, one after another, trying to capture the intensity of the vigorous cascades to share with others at home. Although I was equipped only with a Nikon Coolpix digital camera, the beauty of the falls flowed into my photos, allowing me to relive and share those moments of sheer awe through pictures.
But don't be envious; you can have an amazing experience at Niagara Falls, too! Summer is the best time to visit the falls and the best time for pictures, too. The high winds that blow around Niagara Falls can be severe in the cold months from November through March, when the average temperature is 30-36 degrees Fahrenheit (-0.9-2 degrees Celsius). From June through August, the temperature is much more agreeable at 75-81 degrees F (21-25 degrees C), which makes the cool water splashing from the falls feel very refreshing and delightful to visitors.
