The Might Of The River

I would have loved to see the Chaudiere Falls in the days before all of the infrastructure was here. There's a painting by Krieghoff in the National Gallery that still shows it in that state.


One last shot. I'll have to come back here sometime over the summer to photograph from the main viewing platform. And I'll have to pay a visit to the third of the major waterfalls here, the Hogs Back, as it's been too long since I've been there.

  1. ...the river must be in a huge drainage basin.

  2. I'd love to see before and after photos, like your recent winter series. I forget the locale. sigh. My brain is fried.
    I hope you are well. Take care.

  5. This reminds me of standing at the top of Niagara Falls and watching the currents before the water goes over the edge!
