Taking In Rideau Falls On A Winter Day

Happy Easter!

On the way out of New Edinburgh, a stop at the Rideau Falls is always in order. This is a view of the Ottawa River and Gatineau on the far shore.


I've photographed the waterfalls before, but this was the first time in winter. This is the eastern channel. More from here over the next couple of days.

  9. It has to be very cold for ice to form on moving or falling water. So if it freezes it makes for good photo opportunities.
