Quaker Oats Trail

This is a spot I’ve wanted to photograph for a while, but had no idea how to access it. It’s a portion of the Otonabee River south of a dam, where the water levels fluctuate depending on how open the dam is. Two weeks ago, our camera club visited this location when there was minimal water flowing over the dam. I brought an old pair of hiking shoes so I could wade through the water and find some compositions that were different from the rest of the group. The lighting was fantastic and the subject matter seemed endless. I only wish we had more daylight and that I had brought more film. Below are the six photos I took that evening. I hope to return again in the near future.
