I think we need a picture thread in the Canada section, where we can post **NEW**pictures that we take of our cities, or other Canadian cities if we go on vacation. I thought I would start it off with some nature pictures I took yesterday.Here are some pix from a phototour I did of the salmon running up the Humber River. It is fascinating to watch them try and scale a rather high looking ladder. The Cohoe salmon are part of a programme to restock our Lake, and have grown to a huge size (they look about 2.5- 3 feet long. For anyone interested, it should still be happening for only a few short days. Get off at the Old Mill subway station, and walk down into Etienne Brulee park. I took about 100 pix just to get a few that actually captured the beauties leaping in the air! I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed taking them!
There is not a lot left of the Old Mill from the 1840's, and what is left was at sometime Mock-Tudorized. But if you tell yourself that if it had not undergone a faux period change, it probably would have been ripped down, then the result is handsome enough:
All sorts of 2 legged creatures sit about like vultures:
in the distance you can see the "ladder"
one swimming in the shallows:
the ladder (you can see a salmon under the water about half way up:
and a truly beautiful shot:
