Just got back from my vacation from Ottawa, Ontario Canada and this is the first photo I have worked on. This is the Fairmont Chateau Laurier Hotel which is along the locks of the Rideau Canal.

The Fairmont Chateau Laurier was built between 1909 and 1912. For more information on this amazing building please view http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ch%C3%A2teau_Laurier

  • thank you very much Sue. That is a little too high class for me. I stayed in Ottawa University. Stupid me never even went in the lobby to check out the Hotel but I am told it’s beautiful

    What a beautiful capture of the Chateau and the Rideau, Dave. Two beautiful historic sites! Been there many a time. There used to be the Canadian Contemporary Photography gallery in the newer part.

  • thanks Mike I could be wrong but I think the gallery was there two years ago.
