Watch this Video to See Niagara Falls at Its Most Beautiful

Niagara Falls by Global Girl Travels

Watch my latest travel film about one of the world’s most popular waterfalls, Niagara.

Niagara Falls is easily one of my favorite waterfalls on earth. (Iceland’s Kirkjufellsfoss is a close second.) My hands were shaking as I willed my little drone perilously close to that tower of mist. If you are a photographer, I highly recommend you drag yourself out of bed for a sunrise shoot. It’s positively magical to see the sky warm up and pierce through the mist.

My first trip to Niagara Falls was a surprise. I was on my honeymoon and the Hubs told me we were taking a detour from New York. Little did I know that Niagara was branded a lovers’ destination hundreds of years ago. I was so enraptured in my new love that I hardly grasped the enormity of the falls. I was glad to return ten years later and film this with my new DJI Phantom 4 and my trusty old Sony a7S.

    Very cool, I didn’t know you could fly a drone there. Did you need to get special permission? Were there any others?

    • Hi Jim. I didn’t see any other drones that weekend, but there are YouTube videos. Yes, you do need permission to fly over the falls, but you don’t need permission to fly in the park across from the falls where you can also get a good view.
