Rural landscapes: spring at the church


Balls Falls was established by Jacob Ball, a United Empire Loyalist (a supporter of Britain) who left the United States after the American revolution. In 1783, he was granted land in Niagara, upon which a village was eventually started. The acreage, which includes a pair of glorious waterfalls, was bought by the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority in 1962 and turned into a conservation area.
It’s a great place for nature and rural photography; in this case, I had a great sky and slanting early-morning light to work with and it beautifully highlighted the historic church. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter and possibly a graduated density filter on the sky.
