    ‘They’re more sharp’: Tourists take in new lights on falls

    No Comments

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    For longtime Niagara Falls visitor Chris Endres, it was like looking at the falls with a new glasses.

    They were brighter. Clearer. Better.

    Like several other tourists Saturday night, he had come to check out the falls in a better light. Four million dollars worth of better lights, actually.

    On Thursday, the bi-national Niagara Falls Illumination Board unveiled the first new lighting system for the falls in 20 years. Using 100 panels of LED lights, the new system provides twice the power of the old Xenon spotlights while using about 60 percent less energy.

    The new system was unveiled during a lighting ceremony Thursday, and two nights later tourists were bedazzled by the change.

    Yesterday I walked along the Niagara Parkway next to the Falls and in Queen Victoria Park. I took a bunch of pictures. It was overcast, so the sky doesn’t look great, but the colours of the leaves look good. I should have probably taken these a couple of weeks ago to get some more leaves on the trees, but I just didn’t think about it. Unfortunately, in the last couple of weeks we’ve had a lot of wind, so most of the leaves are off the trees now.

    You can see some of the thumbnails below, and the full versions in the Niagara Falls in Autumn 2010 gallery.

    Note: There were 3,241 images in 254 galleries/categories in the Niagara Falls Image Gallery at the time they were posted.
