Continuing on today, here we have views from the main viewing area of the Chaudiere Falls. And here is one of the videos I took during this visit.
I continued a little further on, towards the end of the pathway where I took more shots and the second of these videos of the falls. I have sat before in the chairs up here. The roar of the waterfalls has a lulling effect; on a pleasant day it would be all too easy to fall asleep while sitting.
On my way out I photographed the view upstream. The Ottawa River is wide here. The buildings in the background are at Tunney's Pasture on the Ottawa side of the river. A portion of the old railway bridge I mentioned the other day can be seen as well.
One last shot for this walk. I passed by the War Museum. Across the street is some parkland and I paused to photograph this. I'm guessing it's lavender, but I assume my gardening readers can confirm it readily. In that regard, I'm hopeless.
Powerful water shots.ReplyDelete
Looks close enough for lavender to me, but it also might be a type of sage.ReplyDelete
There is something refreshing about falling water.ReplyDelete
White noise falls and great look back, WilliamReplyDelete
I have a little (Henry-) waterfall here. Sooo good. yes, lavender is soothing, too. Have that under my pillow for a better sleep.ReplyDelete
I like the sounds of fast streaming water.ReplyDelete
The water looks so powerful, Love the views with the flowers.
Have a great day and a happy weekend!

Are you having any blogger problems? I can't see my reading list anymore and some blogs take forever to open. Also my blog listing on people's favourites list seem to have changed to some weird code. I wonder if I am even showing on reading lists? All very strange.
Great photos...but I missed or couldn't locate a video. Waterfalls always are attractive, and big ones are awesome!ReplyDelete
Impressive photos of the water.ReplyDelete
Nice pics. Love the wild flowers. That falls is very noisy.ReplyDelete
I loved the video. It sounds just like I had imagined it would sound.ReplyDelete
El vídeo complementa muy bien tus fotos. En él se puede mejor apreciar, la intensidad y el gran volumen del agua en su desplazamiento.ReplyDelete
@Anvilcloud: it's quite a sight.ReplyDelete

@Ventana: thank you.
Uhm, kinda looks likes rosemary to me. :-)ReplyDelete
I agree with you about the sounds of water, it's very relaxing. I find water helps me think, it's good for clearing your head.ReplyDelete
Great photos William!ReplyDelete
