Canal Bridge

Lift bridge and reflection, Hamilton/Burlington

Taking this photo last Monday (a beautiful February day), I was in Hamilton looking across the canal at Burlington. I was struck by the beauty of the orange reflection. The colour is paint, not rust.

I like it was painted to look rust-ish. Very pretty color, actually!

I love the composition and the colors and the reflections and the bridge.

Great reflection. Sort of the color of our Golden Gate. Doesn't look quite a cold as some recent photos.

This is such a beautiful shot.
I have always found draw bridges kind of scary for some reason but I love to watch the boats going through.

It does look like rusty water.

Well, I guess when it does rust, they won't have to paint right away! Beautiful reflection.
