Skating finally opened on the Rideau Canal for the season on January 23rd, with a section between the Bank Street Bridge and the Corktown Bridge opened at first. It has been erratic ever since. These are views taken on that day from the Bank Street Bridge looking east and west, around five in the afternoon. The sun was down, but there was enough ambient light left behind. The full moon is that light above the eastern horizon in the first two shots. Tomorrow I start up my Winterlude series.
