I finish this tour from the New Edinburgh area with a look at the Rideau Falls in winter. New Edinburgh starts at the east bank of the Rideau River, so here on the viewing platform, I was standing at its edge. The falls had over the course of the winter largely frozen over here in the east branch. One portion of it was open, and water was pouring down into the Ottawa River below, gradually starting to create a plunge pool in the ice at the base, carrying floes of ice from the work being done to break up the ice just upstream from here. The buildings you can see in the background include the Diefenbaker and Pearson Buildings south of Sussex, as well as the National Research Council building on the north side of the street. The Pearson and NRC buildings are on the west shore of the Rideau River. Green Island itself is home to several military monuments on its north end.
The falls looked rather magical all iced up like this.
