Watery Wednesday......

This weeks photo's were taken back in June of this year and are the hydro plants on both sides of the Niagara River. The first two are on the Canadian side, the third one is on the American side.

We had hoped to take a tour of the Canadian plant, but when we got there, the only tour we could go on, was with a school party, so we decided we'd give it a miss!!!

For more information on the hydro plants please click on this link.

Great pictures, Gill.
One of these days I'm gonna get up that way to see that river and the falls.

I was fascinated by the fact that it doesn't appear to have much water going though it, but the noise is something

There is nothing more likely to guarantee a wrecked tour of anywhere than a school party. Urgh. School holidays are a pain too but at least you don't have kids hunting in packs. I sound like a grumpy old woman I know!

Cool. We all know of Niagra Falls, which is awesome. But there is also something very remarkable and awesome in its own way in what man has done with these gifts of nature. Thanks for the reminder.

Amazing architecture, all needed to "tame" the river!

As Michael said - a different view of Niagra we don't always see or think about.
Great angles on your photos.

I really like that first photo with the bridge in the distance.

I'm always interested in stew dams (I think that's how you call them in English?) so it's great to see your photo's. The inventions we humans make to control nature and this case water. Thank you for sharing!

Great shots. Didn't feel like hanging out with the kiddies, huh? LOL! I find these kind of things fascinating. Thanks for sharing. :-)

The last one shows the movement well.

Excellent photos. I'm a hydrologist with an engineering background, and now with the National Park Service. Water has multiple uses, many of which compete against one another. It's a struggle to find a balance.
