No sweat...I am Canadian. I don't think I need to worry about too much. I just wondered if anyone knew any other good spots to take photos of, other than the falls themselves. I do plan on getting up in the Minolta tower...its free rather than paying an arm and a leg for 30min in Skylone.

There are plenty of places to set up on the Canadian side. US has the falls, CAN has the view. Getting the proper framing and exposure is the challange. For water falls I prefer a slower shutter speed on a tripod.

Just north of the Falls is a great place where they keep butterflies. Its a large conservatory. You will get some great shots in there.

I see the hours are 9Am to 9PM Summer. Not sure if its even open in the winter but its worth a try to ask.

I know you can get some great boat action shots just down stream of the falls where the giant whirlpool is, They have tours that run up and down at that spot and can be photographed very well from the banks of the river. (well at least on the US side as I am afraid I do not have enough ID to go to Canada and check out the view from there), I might have to swim back across and be labeled by my friends and family as a wet back.....Frank
