Inglis Falls/ Our World

 Inglis Falls, Owen Sound, Onatrio

On land owned by a conservation authority, this fan-shaped falls is about 18 metres (59 feet)  high, a little taller than a five-storey building.

To show you just how high the falls is, a young man is standing on a boulder below the falls. (I think no one is supposed to be climbing on the rocks, but since he was down there I took his photo.)

Same person on rock below the falls

This area was originally owned by Peter Inglis who built a saw mill and grist mill above the falls. Both buildings are long gone.


Inglis Falls is located northwest of Toronto and is just south of the peninsula that separates Georgian Bay from the rest of Lake Huron.

They are lovely falls. Hope you are enjoying your Fall season. I notice the trees are starting to turn.

Sandra said...

i like the shot that shows the whole falls, with the man on the big rock in the middle. that shows how really majestic and LARGE they are. a beautiful spot. wish i could see it

Kathy said...

Do they make a lot of noise?

Imagine having ownership of such a lovely work of nature! It would be hard to resist standing there on those rocks and experiencing a natural shower. But it is probably a little slippery, too. :)

Jill said...

What a beautiful place! I so enjoyed your photos.

awe-inspiring.

I like this kind of "stair-step" fall. I remember we saw quite a few like it when we visited upstate New York several years ago. They are very different than the sheer drop of falls in Yosemite.

Lovely falls, great pictures.

It's beautiful, EG. And thanks for catching that guy on the rock 'cause he really gives a sense of scale to the picture!

It is interesting to see this - I was up there in the winter, which created a very different view!

Icy BC said...

Fantastic of the waterfall, and those yellow leaves made it looks like heaven..

Judy said...

He does give a sense of scale to the falls! I love the second shot, where it is just the falls, and the man, cascading down the rock face!!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Watyerfalls are so mesmerising and enchanting! Interesting how they all have a special shape and character! This one is so beautiful! And love the man featured so small, yet important to appreciate the size of the falls!

Hi there - great shots of the waterfalls - seems to be a bit of a theme this week (if two shots of waterfalls makes a theme that is!)

Cheers - Stewart M - Australia

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

That is a very attractive falls. I like how it fans out and has all sorts of different levels.

Kay L. Davies said...

It's a beautiful waterfall, and I love the squared-off rock formations, unrounded by the force of the water. Very interesting.

It is lovely, EG. Around here, I imagine some industrious entrepreneur would have dammed it for power in the 1800s. Glad that didn't happen up there.
