Marine Railway: Climbing the Cliff

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'" - Parks Canada.

About this photo:
Yesterday's post showed the boat I was on in straps being lifted up on a massive marine railway device at Big Chute. Today's post showes the view from the stern of our boat as we are lifted high out of the water, over the cliff, and down into the upstream lake. Because of the time of day I was shooting directly into the sun and therefore the image was hard to work with. Lots of post (as is obvious) on this shot. I still thought it made for an intersting photo though so I thought I would share it. 

Please, check out this amazing set of photos here: http://www.edto.net/photo_bigchute.htm if you're intersted (not mine). It's worth a peak to actually see what it is all about. Big Chute is loacted here (map).

This just looks wrong! Boats aren't supposed to be this high up. Excellent and intriguing shot!
Great shot. I would love to experience this!
This definitely looks very funny, the boats so high up, it is a great shot, the strong lighting definitely adds the the strange feeling of boats hanging high in the air
