Rideau Canal Pedestrian Bridge Photos


2005-03-24 (8 photos)

After I recharged my batteries overnight, I took some photos of the recent progress from the West bank. (SW looking NE)

Here's the bridge from a slightly different angle. A professional photographer would claim that he "framed" the shot with trees...like it was intentional or something (SW looking NE)

Here's the East approach from the West side. The photos don't look like they have any logical order. They are sort of in the order that I took them, but I took shots of the same place from different positions. I also rearranged them a bit on here to try to compensate... (W looking SE)

The rest of the East approach. The east bank of the canal is far lower than Somerset Street on the west side. Despite this, the bridge has to be built high enough for boats to clear it. (W looking E)

See what I mean? It's as though we just saw this photo! Trust me, there's more from this batch! I stepped a bit further down the snow-covered bank to grab this shot, which shows a tiny bit more of the span than the ones above. (SW looking NE)

Not much to see here, really. (SW looking N)
Aw, it looks like a rainbow. Look at it there, all converging and such. Note that it has only been a day, and the cranes are already gone. (W looking E)

A crooked shot of the new span and the east approach. (W looking E)
