The SkyWheel: Niagara Falls, Ontario

Every Friday we feature an inspirational travel photo of a Canadian destination taken by one of our readers.

Why we chose it: We almost didn’t recognize Niagara Falls’ SkyWheel from this angle. Bathed in warm light, it looks almost like a yellowing photograph of a Victorian-era Ferris wheel—if it weren’t for the sleek enclosed (and heated!) carriages.

For those of us with acrophobia the POV is downright menacing, but the detail in the clouds and steel framework is amazing. The image captures the enormity of this ride that carries you 53 meters (175 feet) above the falls.
