Clearing the Air – of Fog… and Raising the Bar

My last post featured a barely visible bridge across the Delaware River near where George Washington famously crossed from New Jersey to Pennsylvania on Christmas Day, 1776. That experience was interesting because of the heavy air and dense fog, but the picture  didn’t quite convey the ambiance.

I like the following two images a lot better however, near where George Shaw has gained some notoriety…

Background Of These Images

Jeanne and I were in Canada at “Niagara on the Lake,” which hosts the Shaw Festival each year, …the second largest repertory theater company in North America, staging plays written and inspired by George Bernard Shaw. Located on the shoreline of Lake Ontario at the mouth of the Niagara River, this quaint little town is about 24km (15mi) north of the Falls.

These positive slide film images were taken from the scenic Canadian Niagara Parkway on April 23rd, 1997.

As always, thanks for viewing and you can click-on or finger-stretch to zoom in. Comments are always welcome. M 🙂

  1. Hi MV … I’ve been away from WP for about 9 months – experimenting with other things, and redesigning this site as well as my new one. Good to see you are still going strong here as evidenced by this one. Wes

    1. Good to hear from you again, Wes. Missed you and the beautiful images as you posted today. I find it a bit challenging to keep up my submissions, life and even weather sometimes gets in the way. We’ve just endured two powerful Nor’easters, less than a week apart here in New Jersey. The high winds of the first… and heavy wet snows of the second brought down thousands of trees and electrical wires. We lost power for 6 days. But I’ll be posting a few images shortly as we gather up the pieces… M 🙂

      1. Yes, I’ve followed the progress of your end of winter conditions on Twitter …. summer must seem far away. And Paris has experienced its wettest and coldest winter in many years – bring back global warming.
        Hope to see your images when you recover.
