The Rideau Falls is a waterfall located in Ottawa, Canada where the Rideau River empties into the Ottawa River. The falls are divided by Green Island, with the Old City Hall just to the south. To the west of the falls is the headquarters of the National Research Council while to the east are the Canada and the World Pavilion and the French Embassy. The falls were named by Samuel de Champlain in 1613, who felt the wall of water resembled a curtain, or rideau in French. The Rideau River was later named after the falls. The Rideau Canal was constructed to bypass these falls and the Hog’s Back Falls. ref: Wikipedia.
I was looking for a lit christmas tree by the break of day but didn’t find any. All the lights were already shot off. But this is what I came-up with!

Started photography in 1975. Took photography classes. Learned black and white dark room. Did the transition to digital in 2005. Learned a few post-processing programs and made my choice to Photoshop and Lightroom.
I like to shoot wildlife, birds, macro, landscapes and street photography to name a few.
