The little waterfall in the Rotary Eco Gardens, Cornwall, Ontario, Canada. Sunday, January 17th, 2010. A rare sunny day, although a little cool at minus 4 celcius, with a wind chill making it feel more like minus really cold. In order to preserve the pristine nature of this scene, I had to remove two discarded coffee cups. Gotta love it!

  • Hi, Syl! Greatly appreciate your very kind words and the favourite, my friend. A mild January day in the Great White North! As we would say, “Beauty day, eh?”
    And I wish they were my cups because they surely would not have been left there, littering this scene. Needless to say, they have been removed.

    Cups spotted, many rude words said, cups removed and placed in bin about 30 feet away. Sometimes you wonder…..
