From the looks of things, I would say flooding is not a problem. Lovely how the yards transition to the water.

Judy said...

Beautiful shot, but I still think you are jumping the gun a bit, since it is only 9 AM Tuesday.

Denise said...

What a beautiful scene you've taken. This photo is wonderful.

Tom said...

A beautiful view and picture.. I have missed your last four posting so I was happy to play catch up todays.. Your canal bridge with supports reminds me of a local bridge which carries a motorway over our river Tame

The river is their road. Wouldn't that be so much fun to just jump in your boat and putt-putt to visit the neighbors. MB

What strikes me about this picture is the way the humidity in the air softens the scene almost like a water color painting. It is dry here so we don't see that and when we were in the midwest earlier this month, I noticed the same thing in the pictures that I took.

Could I make a request? Would it be possible to take the same shot when those leaves turned yellows or reds? I love the sight but I'm sure it has a different feel to it when the trees don their fall garb.

I have my watery image at http://ewok1993.wordpress.com

Looks like a beautiful place to live. It's funny that the river is part of the Trent-Severn waterway, because the River Severn here in Wales is just down the road :)

Wonderful image! If I had to give it a name I would call it 'greenery and water'.

Nice shot. I thought I saw a spot where the sun had popped through but guess not. It is a beautiful scene and well worth the time to photograph it.

Thanks for helping me to make history.

Hi Judi,

Probably both as this area is only an hour and a half from Toronto. The roads are good.

Looks like a lovely river with all the cottages. So they can drive their boats right up to their house. How cool.
