Rideau Canal, UNESCO World Heritage

The Rideau Canal became a UNESCO World Heritage Site on June 29, 2007. It is the best preserved canal in North America from the great canal-building era of the early 19th century to remain operational along its original line with most of its original structures intact. Viewed from the Wellington Street bridge, these locks are at the northern most portion of the Rideau Canal at the Ottawa River. Parliament Hill and the Bytowne museum. Chateau Laurier hotel on right. I enhanced the colors and contrast in PhotoShop to emphasize the Maple trees. I am growing tired of seeing people butcher their colorful fog photos by constraining them to be black and white, blechh!
