Vantages Of The Cascade

The area around Hog's Back Falls are a photographer's dream. Much of it is parkland, and visitors get multiple views of the waterfalls and the river from both sides.

  12. What a very scenic area! It looks like one could spend a long time just sitting on the bank watching the falls.

  13. @Tomas: they are!

    @Halcyon: they're a delight to watch.

    @Orvokki: I really have to come down here more often and photograph in different seasons.

    @Bill: yes, in spring the falls are quite different!

    @Marianne: I certainly think so.

    @Linda: that appears to be the consensus.

    @Beth: this one's quite different from the Rideau Falls downstream. And the activity here seems relatively moderate.

    @EG: yes, there are homes and apartments so close to the park, so I imagine some of the neighbours make a walk down here regularly.

    @Tex: thanks!

  14. @Gnome: it really is.

    @Janey: I do too.

    @Lowell: I probably spent the better part of an hour here this time.

    @Sharon: it certainly is!

    @Norma: I've always liked this one.

    @Linda: I'll have to keep that in mind. The only time I've used the video feature on my camera, it didn't work out as I'd wanted.

    @Grace: thanks!

    @Luis: I agree.

    @Red: it's a spot that's popular, but never seems crowded.

  28. These are gorgeous shots and it's clearly a beautiful place. I wonder what kind of rock that is. I'm guessing it's not granite. Basalt??
