Talbot Lock on the Trent-Severn Waterway
The Trent-Seven Waterway connects Lake Ontario with Georgian Bay (Lake Huron). passing through central Ontario including Lake Simcoe.
The locks are closed for the winter and won't be in operation until next May.
Dam at Talbot Lock
As you can see, water was still flowing in mid December when I took these photos and...
Lock on left, dam on right
the open water made more than a few Canada geese very happy.

Great shots. Hug B
Quite a feat of engineering. Your pictures convey both its size and its charm.
The engineering reminds me of the work done on our Rideau Canal. Splendid shots.
thanks for showing all of the dam and the locks. i have never seen one except in movies and photos. something new for me.
How interesting that is. Does the lock close every winter??
Those dam locks look really cold. But do you really need to send your Canadian air all the way to Florida. You're ruining my golf game! :)
Look at all those geese! They seem to be having a party.
It would be nice if we could lock in the cold, too, sometimes. :) But it is still warm enough for the geese that are perfectly happy it seems not to fly south in December.
neat place. definitely nothing i see here. :)
I'm sure the geese appreciate the open water.
An interesting post with some nice photos.
Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.
Locks are amazing works of engineering aren't they?
That is an interesting lock. You will have to take us back in May when it is in operation.
I bet it's frozen solid now!
Lovely photo of the lock! I'm sure the geese love the open water.
I find these so interesting. We have some old ones locally that were used as a canal.
Look at all the birds!!!
What great pictures and as I'm enjoying them the thought arrived gee whiz I haven't been to see one in the frozen winter time, in a very long time! I need to change that!
The geese probably aren't too happy today!
The geese do look very happy, all that peace and quiet to enjoy!
That's quite a drop in water level for that lock. You'll need to do a summer version of this for contrast (if you haven't already) !
I love the wide shot with the trees in the background and the geese in the forefront. Lovely area!
I would love to see locks in action someday!
I really liked the photo of the lock. So many Canada Geese must have made a symphony of sound.
When I saw today's blog title and thumbnail on my blog roll, I honestly thought that I'd be seeing a photo of a piece of hardware! I know, you're laughing at me right now. I deserve it!
Interesting area. I think our locks are open all year around--of course we don't get the freezing temps as you do. MB
Hi. EG. great feat of engineering and wonderful shots of it. Geese certainly look happy.
Great blend of beauty and practicality.
How neat! I've visited the locks and dams on the Mississippi River, and it's fascinating to see them moving the barges through.
Dams are very interesting, especially if they are pretty like this one.
