The Morning Fish at Swift Rapids

Photos from the Trent Severn:
I had the opportunity to travel through the Trent Severn from Georgian Bay to Lake Simcoe at the end of September this year.  It is quite an experience and I highly recommend it as a fun and relaxing way to spend a few days if you're living in Ontario. More information on the historic waterway and canal system can be found here. The waterway is so "magnificent it has been named 'one of the finest interconnected systems of navigation in the world'.

About this photo:
I took this after waking up early after a night's sleep at the base of the huge Swift Rapids lock (Lock 43). With my camera in hand I was ready to head up the 70-odd feet of stairs to the top of the lock for some shots of the sun rising over the lake above. On the way I thought the reflections here made for a nice photo. The foam in the water is caused by the churning effects of the nearby hydro turbines I believe. This photo was taken here (google map).

Beautiful photograph! Love the contast of the boat (great reflection, by the way), and that fabulous green water. I think Canada has now topped my list of places I must visit. (:o)
Very nice picture. The reflections on the green water are great. I like the lighting

"Two men in a boat" .. a novel, that's what came to my mind when the picture opened.

What a deliciously clear picture, and superb colours too.

Trent Severn ... the names of two UK rivers, and the name of a UK water supply company wink

Wow, does this ever remind me of home. Nothing like fishing in the morning where the pine and hemlock hang out over the water. I can almost smell it!
