St. Jacobs Dam Sunset

St. Jacobs Dam Sunset

Today I got an email from a friend telling me that the water going over the St. Jacobs Dam was starting to freeze. Our own mini Niagara Falls she said. With that information I planned to go after work to take a few shots. I was curious about where the sun was setting this time of year in relation to the dam so I went to my favorite website, The Photographers Ephemeris  to find out. I was in luck! The sun would be setting in line with the falls. All I needed now was a good sunset.
I arrived with time to set up and as the sun went I took shots from several angles. I was not disappointed. This is one of my favorites.
Thanks Marion for the suggestion! I’ll have to keep an eye on this location to see if the frozen falls expands.

  2. I love that fiery sky, Neil.

    Speaking of Niagara Falls, did you see that guy who just climbed the ice sheet beside the Horseshoe Falls?
