From the moment the heavy rain stopped until every single cloud was gone making it boring afternoon, we had 40 minutes of amazingly photogenic weather with the clear sky, the clouds, the mist and the multiple rainbows. I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time.
Shooting & Processing
The shooting part was easy. The difficult part was to find the spot for taking pictures. July is extremely busy time at Niagra Falls and after the rain stopped, every single tourist was outside walking along the river. I did not even try to unpack my tripod keeping it in the backpack.
I took a few of single shots hand-held and was on my way to Skylon Tower for some areal views.
