Over the long weekend, I travelled to my old home town of Petawawa, Ontario. The Ottawa River is wide and cold, and looks over some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world.

This first shot is what we called "the bluff" when we were kids. NowI am grown and have learned it is called "Brennan's Bluff"... I'll call it the bluff... for old time's sake.

Same scene stitched from three extremely wide-angle shots.

This last shot (for now) is taken from the top of the Petawawa Ski Club hill, known to us boys as "Mount Molson" (not because of the beer). I have many memories of skiing under the lights with the Beach Boys blasting over the slopes, or watching the snow blow in from the Qu├Ębec side of the river.

Beautiful shots! I was wondering with thesecond one....how long would it take to drive a small boat to the other side?

I like them all but the 3rd one realy shows the beauty of the land. Nicley done.

Thanks, Rose. Getting across by boat doesn't take very long. (It's getting back after dark that is the hard part:roll

Just to the right of the third shot (just out of view) my sister and brother own small properties on the far side of the river (actually on Isle des Allumettes)

Thanks for the comments,

All nice - & you sound as though you had a good time in these places.

I particularly like the upper Ottowa River - all that water around us! Lovely.

And on the other side of that water, about a 1000 miles of bush, then tundra, then, Russia.... Thanks for the comments.
