Along the Ottawa river - D700
Feb 20, 2014

The temperature was really nice this morning, around 3°C. I decided to have a walk along the river. There is a nice sidewalk which offers a great view on the Ottawa river and the Capital. I wanted to go there since the beginning of the winter but I didn’t find the motivation until today. The only time I was there before was during the summer. I didn’t know if the snow I could access the path which follow the Ottawa river. I finally found an unofficial entrance to the area. I had a really great view on the river and the city. That was a nice time.

I tried to process the pictures in black and white and I like the result.

It looks colder than +3! I like number 2.

Thanks for posting. This sure beats posts of ' this versus that' or oil splater.

I really like the images - beautiful! The last time I was in Ottawa was around January 2002. People were skating to work and school on the river - it was terrific. Is it still like that?

Don, you are talking about the "Rideau Canal" and yes it is still like that.

Nice work Makolm...

You have some nice winter b&w's there!  Yes, great composition in number two especially.  F11 on all of them?  Just asking because number two might have needed the DOF but others may have been sharper at f5.6 or so.

A lovely set - nicely composed.  Nice to see a series of D700 'scapes.

Thank you guys for the comments.

Yes people are still using the Rideau Canal to skate, it's the longest skating rink in the world: 8 kms.

It's fun.
