Someone with a Blogger blog posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls (with lots of pictures):
I made everyone stand around and wait at the top of the falls because I had to get a video of the Maid of the Mist doing its thing. Turns out that it just fights the current of the water rushing away from the Falls then turns back to pick up its next load

My first attempt at panorama
photoshop did such a great job that I did not have to do any
post procesing at all.
Exposure blend came out perfect
Camera was set on aperture priority

Someone with a Windows Live blog has posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls (I think the person used a very poor translation tool to help them post in English):
I comed place from my trip to the falls tardily last Dominicus afternoon. It holds been ten geezerhood since I ‘ve last been and nix verily holds alteration. The falls are still immense and beautiful. Clifton Hill still negociates to pack every tacky holidaymaker attraction up and down that steep hill. A couple of new sights for me was the Niagara Sky wheel, and the 10000 Siddhartha Sarira Tope a Buddhist temple across wall street from the entryway of the Whitewater Walking, things I ‘ve ne’er maked on past home trips to the falls.
From the Niagara Falls Review:
Protecting the Ontario government’s own investment in Casino Niagara is the reason it has to be treated differently from the Maid of the Mist, says Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty, rejecting opposition calls to invite bids from property owners interested in hosting a casino.
“There is a distinction,” the premier told reporters in Niagara- on-the-Lake Wednesday where he spoke at the Ontario Economic Summit.
With Ontario Lottery and Gaming’s lease on the casino’s Falls Avenue location set to expire in March, McGuinty said his government’s preference is to have the Crown corporation continue negotiating an extension with landlord Canadian Niagara Hotels.
The government has two options for Casino Niagara – renew the lease “at a reasonable rate” or abandon the Canadian Niagara Hotels location for a new location to be determined later.
When Casino Niagara opened in 1996, Ontario Lottery and Gaming pumped $125 million into the old Maple Leaf Village site to convert a defunct amusement park into Ontario’s second commercial casino.
Building a new casino would mean walking away from the initial investment and some smaller expenditures like the $12 million spent in 2005 when sports betting came in.
“When you look at it that way, it really makes sense for us to do the best that we can to negotiate a reasonable new lease at the existing site,” McGuinty said. “It was a lot of money to build that casino inside that space.”
