Dam (at low water)

image of London St DamThe other night we had freezing rain that stuck to everything. Dangerous driving, hard to walk on the sidewalks. In the morning everything was coated in ice. I grabbed my camera and ran out to take shots of the sparkly prettiness.

The Otonabee below the dam is like no other landscape on the planet. In fact, when the water is low, and you climb down the bank and stand on the shale, it feels like you’re on another planet altogether.

  1. Interesting locations. I find it very eerie to stand on a river bed where I am accustomed to seeing fast flowing water. Seems unnatural and somehow foreboding.
