Today I'm stepping away from Confederation Park for one day to show you some views of the Rideau Canal. This is a view to the south from the Corktown pedestrian bridge that links Centretown to the right with the University of Ottawa to the left.
This bridge has attracted the abomination that is the love lock. It seems to have become even more of a problem than the last time I photographed it.
Down on the ice, here's a view of the bridge itself.
Turning north, the Canal heads north towards three more bridges.
The Laurier Bridge is here in the foreground, framing the final two bridges, the Mackenzie King Bridge and Plaza Bridge, as well as the Chateau Laurier.
These two are paramedics, who during the skating season can often be found walking or skating along the skateway to lend assistance to anyone who's twisted an ankle. I like the arches and lines of the bridge's support frame.
