I am doing comparison shots today. These first four shots were all taken on the same day in early April. I was on the Bronson Avenue Bridge over the Rideau Canal shortly after sunrise. First I photographed to the east, where a good deal of the ice was gone, and then crossed over to the west side of the bridge to take in a view of the weak ice still covering Dow's Lake.
Later in the day I stopped further east, on the Bank Street Bridge, photographing first to the east, and then to the west. From the state of the ice, you would have not wanted to walk on it.
Here are the views from a week ago. I looked first to the east from Bronson Avenue, and then to the west over the lake.
Later in the day I came to the Bank Street Bridge and photographed to the east and west. The water had not yet been raised to summer levels when I took these shots, but yesterday I noticed they were higher.
