Niagara Falls

NonexistentJay

When you think of the world's most famous waterfalls, Niagara Falls is near the top of the list. Situated on the border between Canada and the USA, it's a cataract system of three falls on the Niagara River, which connects two of North America's Great Lakes: Huron and Erie.  At peak times, about 168k cubic meters (almost six million cu. ft.) of water flows over its 51 meter (167 ft.) drop every minute.  In this video, you wil get a bird's eye view of the mighty waterfall, compliments of contributor Nonexistent Jay.

Canadian Nature

Where's Fuji?

One of the more attractive aspects of Toronto, Canada is the accessibility of "nature" within such a short distance of the center city.  Even as Greater Toronto now exceeds 7 million in population, some of the most beautiful natural scenery remains in pristine condition even as it become semi-abosorbed into the metropolis.  In this video, Fujibara Films gives us an aerial view of some of these natural sites of Greater Toronto, including Webster Falls on the western end of Lake Ontario and Scarborough Bluffs just east of the center city.

Daniel Molina

Top contributor Daniel Molina used a DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone to create this beautiful video of a wintertime landscape in Ontario, Canada.  It was shot in the area of Muskoka, which is in the central part of Canada's most populous province.  Muskoka is located a bit over a two hour drive northwest of Toronto.  It is a quintessential Canadian "cottage country" region, dotted with over 1,600 lakes.  It sits to the east of Georgia Bay, a northern extension of Lake Huron, one of the five Great Lakes.

Ontario's Nottawasaga Bay sits at the south end of Gulf Bay, itself an eastern extension of Lake Huron, part of the Great Lakes system of North America.  This is a quintissential Great Lakes scene, with a rocky shoreline backed up by seemingly endless forests.  In this amazing video, top contributor Elnaz, a native of Ontario, flew her drone over the bay just as the ice was beginning to break with the approach of spring.  The aerial perspective is amazing.  The video was shot with a DJI Phantom 4 drone.

In a temperate climate like Ontario, Canada, the transition from winter to spring is as profound as that from summer to fall.  The transition can occur quite quickly, depending on weather conditions.  In this amazing video, contributor elnaz555 filmed the Ontario landscape over a three week period and used timelapse editing to put together this remarkable aerial perspective of Canada's largest province turning from winter to spring.  The aerial footage in the video was captured with a DJI Phantom 4 drone.

Lucid Dreaming: Long Sault Parkway

elnaz555

One of the most beautiful bits of "natural" scenery in Canada's Ontario province isn't actually natural - it's a park comprised of man made islands.  Long Sault was an area of rapids on the St. Lawrence River, just upstream from Cornwall.  In the late 1950's, a massive hydroengineering project resulted in the flooding of some of the mainland and creating new islands in the river.  Now a park, contributor Elnaz555 captured the beautiful spot in this amazing drone video.

Anyone who thinks that Ontario is all about Toronto should watch this beautiful drone video of Flowerpot Island, which sits off the end of a remote peninsula of Lake Huron.  It's near the town of Tobermoy, a small town which sits at the end of the Bruce Peninsula on the middle of the five North American Great Lakes.  Fujibara Films used a drone to create this beautiful spot in rural Ontario, just a few hours drive but a world apart from the skyscrapers of Toronto to the south.  This is Canada's Cottage Country at its best.

The province of Ontario is home to some of Canada's largest westlands.  They cover much of the central and northern part of the province, where bogs and marshy areas abound amidst thousands of lakes and millions of acres of pristine forests.  In this drone video by Elnaz555, you'll get a bird's eye view of one of Ontario's cranberry bogs, which put wetlands areas to agricultural use.  It's near the town of Muskoka Lakes, an area of Ontario's "cottage country" located a two hour drive north of Toronto.

Chris Brockhurst created this beautiful capture of a couple of idyllic semi-rural spots in Ontario, Canada.  Port Perry is located on Lake Scugog, a large artificial lake located about an hour's drive northeast of Toronto.  It's known for its well-preserved Victorial area downtown.  Pickering is located on the northern shore of Lake Ontario, about 40 km (around 25 mi.) east of Toronto.  An old town that was once considered a stand-alone community, it's considered an outlying suburb or Toronto.

Sunset in Kingston, Ontario

Daniel DeGagne

Contributor Daniel DeGagne used a DJI Mavic Air fitted with polarizing filters to create this beautiful sunset aerial of Kingston, Ontario.  Kingston is the primary city on the eastern side of Lake Ontario, opposite Toronto.  Among other things, it's a gateway to the Thousand Islands area in the St. Lawrence River, into which Lake Ontario empties.  Kingston is one of the oldest cities in Ontario, and was built on the site of a French fort called Frontenac.  For several years in the 19th century, it was Canada's capital.

Contributor THEJGORDON created this excellent drone video of the beautiful area around the town of Tobermory in rural Ontario, Canada.  The town lies at the northern tip of a landform called the Bruce Peninsula.  The Peninsula extends into Lake Huron, dividing the main body of the lake from Georgian Bay to the east.  The position of the peninsula relative to shipping routes has led to numerous shipwrecks here, and for that reason Tobermory is sometimes called the world's freshwater SCUBA diving capital.

Greater Toronto (Canada) has grown in part by pulling once-independent towns and villages along the north shore of Lake Ontario into its orbit.  At the same time though, many of these areas have been able to retain much of their attractive natural scenery even as they become in effect Toronto suburbs.  In this drone video by Shaun Rickard, you'll see two towns which lie close to the eastern edge of Greater Toronto: South Ajax and  Pickering.  The latter lies just to the east of Scarborough Bluffs, west of the former.

Baileyroseking used a DJI Mavic Pro and a Sony ground camera to capture the beauty of Ontario's Dundas Peak on a beautiful fall morning.  Dundas lies just to the west of Hamilton, at the western end of Lake Ontario.  A substantial city of over a half-million in its own right, Hamilton is now considered part of the greater Toronto-Hamilton metropolitan area, a metropolis of over seven million.  The area around Dundas Peak is in the transition zone between the rural and urban sides of Ontario.

Contributor TannerNG used a drone to tell the story of how deforestation is affecting landscapes in the  Ontario province of Canada.  It was filmed around the town of Dryden, which is in the far western part of the province.  The area is northwest of Lake Superior, not far from the western border with Manitoba.  The video shows how the logging and paper industries have cleared part of the area of its ancient forests.  It also shows the contrast with the area further north, which has been comparatively untouched.
