The first day of each month is a theme day for members of City Daily Photo. For December, that theme is Joy, and you can see how others are interpreting this theme here.
For this theme, I felt that Miwate fit the requirements of the theme, as it was joyful to watch. That was the name of a music and light show done by the production company Moment Factory in collaboration with the Anishinaabe First Nation, held in the fall of 2017 as part of the Canada 150 celebrations. It involved illuminating the Chaudiere Falls, which stand in the heart of the Ottawa River between Ottawa and Gatineau, in a ten minute show that carried on through the evenings and was quite popular. The lights, mounted upon the dam behind the falls and other spots, brought the waterfalls to vivid life. Miwate captured the imagination of visitors, and I visited on numerous occasions. These shots were from one of those evenings, and I left them aside for future use. I also filmed videos; if you'd like to see one, click here, though you might want to turn the volume down somewhat- the audio on that camera was a bit harsh.
