Three icy vistas of Niagara Falls that show photographers in action, the first being by famous maker George Barker (in which the dark, silhouetted figure, above, right, is most likely the photographer). In the second image (taken from the same vantage point), the photographer crouches below a mound of snow, his equipment and chemicals nearby. And in the third, taken on Goat Island, the dark figure of a photographer aligns his shot of Horse Shoe Falls. Inscriptions follow.
