Niagara Falls

Today I thought I would share two photos from Niagara Falls to illustrate a lesson in Scale. I love the fluidity and motion in the top image, however we just don’t know how big those falls really are. Because of the tourists in the bottom image, we have a pretty good idea about their size. I share this lesson with you so that next time you are faced with a massive wonder of the world, make sure to include something us viewers can use a reference. If only I could have been there when barrel jumper made an attempt!

  1. These are terrific. We went a few years back, but couldn’t ride the boat beneath the falls. Perhaps next time.

  2. Nice lesson about scale Justin. The falls are one of those subjects that are great for images but whenever I shoot them I can’t convey the massiveness of them.

Leave a comment, I would love to hear from you
