Pure perfection

Today was definitely a great day. I saw so many things and took so many beautiful photos that I don't even know where to start..

People always use to say that nothing and nobody is perfect. Well, I definitely changed my mind about that today. Besides all the crap and tourism is this beautiful nature, a magical force with so much perfection and power you can't even imagine. That's what I saw today at the Niagara Falls and the gardens. Pure beauty.

Walking towards the Niagara Falls wasn't fun at all. We ended up walking in a giant rain storm and the trees turned out not to be such a good shelter.. Second shower that day and totally soaked. But after a while the sun came finally through and that made up for everything. I couldn't believe the force over there, you could really feel the power of nature in this area.
There is no life without water.

 On our way back to Toronto, we saw this amazing sunset.

 But I also realized that besides the creations of human nature, the creations of human beings also have beauty in them. And there are different ways of seeing this. I was dying to make photos when I saw this city skyline by night through my car window, so I took my camera and started to make pictures. Thanks to a bumpy road, a driving car and millions of lights I took these (in my opinion) beautiful and dynamic photos. Actually I took them by accident, but I think they are really great because they show the movement and speed of the city.
It's definitely a different kind of beauty than the nature, but that doesn't mean it isn't beautiful too. I think it's great to have this balance between human nature and human creations. That's what keeps a country like Canada alive.
Lots of love, V
