Niagara, Welland Canal

Lake Erie (on the horizon) empties via the Niagara River towards Niagara Falls, whose white spray is visible towards the center of this view.  Downstream in the foreground is Lake Ontario.

Separately, the 8 locks of the Welland Canal (to the right) offer a navigable channel between the two lakes.  There's a 99.5m elevation drop either way.
