Benches in the Snow

Another scene from the Ottawa trip in December, these two benches overlook the Ottawa Locks of the Rideau Canal, where it meets the Ottawa River. With the canal being frozen in the winter, they don't use this area too much, and there aren't many precautions to prevent the unwary or careless-footed from slipping on the ice and snow right down to their broken-neck death from a railing-less walkway into the canal just steps from this fluffy postcard.

I like this shot for the repetition within the vanishing perspective, and the straight lines mingling with the curves.

I like the colors.
Glad you got back in one piece from that one....did you have boots with good traction, or just those "miracle sneakers" you wore in Scotland, that go anywhere and do anything?
