|Today, I am sharing some of the pictures that I’ve taken of the Niagara River. Some of them depict lots of activity, some show human-made construction (bridges, houses, factories, etc.), and some just show the water and trees and plant life. It is relaxing to look at water. It feels good to see the movement in the water and to see the sun reflected in the water.
As humans, we are drawn to water. Water is life. In fact, 60 percent of the human body consists of water. If we were to stop consuming water altogether, we would not survive for long. Very few people can live for longer than a week without consuming any water.
So, enjoy a beverage and take a look at these river images. Oh, don’t drink the water from the river. It needs to be treated before it can be safely consumed (we can definitely do a better job at taking care of our precious water).

I was born right on the Atlantic Ocean (the Rockaways, in New York City) so I can't resist water photos. My favorite bridge, though, is not in New York State but is the Ravenel Bridge connecting Charleston, SC with Mt. Pleasant, SC. I could walk that bridge every day without tiring of it, I think, looking down, and seeing the sailboats and freight vessels traveling through Charleston Harbor and gazing out at Ft. Sumter, where the Civil War began.
Your pictures are amazing! Thanks for sharing them. Sometimes I wonder if I'd enjoy living near a river more than other bodies of water, just to watch the way it moves.
