Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
Friday, October 17, 2014
Today we're back in the same general area as yesterday, with the same footbridge, about a year later. The Oxtongue River was much higher, however. I would not have wanted to be backpacking on the Uplands trail in these conditions.
I love the ripplets in the water, William. :)ReplyDelete
Stop-motion photo of a year at this scene would be amazing!ReplyDelete
ALOHA from Honolulu
=^..^= . <3
Wow - love the contrast between these two photos, William.ReplyDelete
Backpacking in Canada I think is frequent, right?ReplyDelete
That's quite a different view.ReplyDelete
I like the broken reflections in this shot.
Well, at least the bridge reaches the other side . . . barely.ReplyDelete
The increasing water is becoming a problem in many countries nowadays.ReplyDelete
Looks fine to backpack though might be worried you'd get your feet wet if it floods moreReplyDelete
A bit more scary with all that water...ReplyDelete
Wow the water does look very high! I may feel overwhelmed if I see the river from over the bridge.ReplyDelete
Your photo is beautiful - I love the reflection of the bridge on water!
That's quite a difference in water level !ReplyDelete
@Linda: so did I.ReplyDelete
@Cloudia: that's a good idea!
@Tomas: yes, both backpacking and hiking.
@Jan: thank you.
@Revrunner: just barely.
@Marianne: that's true.
@Bill: there are some places on hiking trails that you just know would have muddy spots in early spring, so the same would apply here.
@VP: you would not want to try swimming!
@Tamago: thank you!
@Stuart: it had been a snowy winter, I recall.
wow, that's a pretty scene!ReplyDelete
Water is king! It does whatever it wants. Sometimes amid tears.ReplyDelete
magnifique endroit mais il a l air d y faire bien froid ;o)ReplyDelete
Nice reflection shot. Let me thank you for all your nice comments on my blog. I really appreciate that.ReplyDelete
@Tex: the area before the bridge includes a picnic ground, so even people who don't go on the trail will come on over and take a look at the river.ReplyDelete
@Birdman: it can really be a force of nature and quite destructive when it needs to be.
@Audrey: merci! And yes, it would have been quite cold.
@Valladolid: thank you!
The water is so much higher. Very interesting contrast.ReplyDelete
Yes it is different but what a beautiful photo!ReplyDelete
A stark reminder that water isn't always pretty and placid!ReplyDelete
it looks pretty but that's not weather i like to hike in either!ReplyDelete
@Jen: I've never stopped in there during the winter. I should try that.ReplyDelete
@Norma: I like it a lot.
@RedPat: soggy indeed!
@Ciel: thank you very much.
@Kay: definitely not in this case.
@Tanya: I prefer dry conditions.
i am truly shocked you have never seen The Christmas Story. i bet i have seen it probably over a zillion billion times. it is always on the area channel during the holidays. hope you will get the chance to check it out. so funny!! if you like comedies ... you will have a blast watching it. ( :ReplyDelete
Looks like some fast water coming through there! I wouldn't like to be canoeing!ReplyDelete
It doesn't look nearly as serene in that photograph.ReplyDelete
Nice bridge reflection.ReplyDelete
Nice image but I find all that water to be intimidating!ReplyDelete
I bet it's high. My goldfish ponds overflows!ReplyDelete
Gosh the water level really was a lot higher William, pretty cool reflection you caught there.ReplyDelete
Looks like a very peaceful place. I like the reflection and shadow very much.ReplyDelete
@Beth: if I can avoid seeing it, I shall!ReplyDelete
@Cheryl: that was a lot of water.
@Mari: definitely not.
@Randy: thank you.
@Linda: you wouldn't want to fall into it at that volume.
@Jennifer: that was quite a year for water levels.
@Gunn: wow indeed!
@Spiderdama: I have to get back to Algonquin.
@Shelly: it definitely is.
