Thanks everyone.. One of those slides that makes me wish we could go back to that time.. Many of the photo spots along the Welland Canal have been lost to fencing through the past 5-10 years.. I am fortunate however as I work for the Seaway Authority so I am able to access all the places which were once freely open to everyone..

Now that is a mirror flat surface on the water :-) Very nice picture of a well kept bulker.

Been following your photoes for a few years now Jeff, always worth a look. Are the great Welland photo locations you used years ago still productive these days, or fenced of as well.
