Louth Falls: Ontario Waterfalls

Louth Falls, Ontario

Louth Falls, Ontario

Although it is not particularly well known, the Louth Falls in Ontario is a gem situated in light woodlands, and one of my favorites.

You reach it by taking Jordan Rd. south off of the QEW Niagara, till you reach the end. Turn left on Highway 81 and then right on 17th St. Turn left on Staff Ave, and look for a parking lot on your left. The trail is part of the Bruce Trail, and a short distance from the parking lot, it starts down a hill, look for a trail to the left part way down which leads to the falls.

This is a good place to work the stream area for photographs.

Warning: It can be dangerous to view and photograph waterfalls. The footing can be wet and slippery, and an accidental fall can result in serious injury or death. Note also that many sections of waterfalls are on private property. Please respect these rights.

Toronto CityPlace

Toronto CityPlace

Toronto CityPlace

Toronto CityPlace is a large residential area just west of Rogers Stadium. It was built on land previously owned by the railroads and the main tracks into Union Station border it still.The buildings shown here are Parade 1 and Parade 2. The sky bridge connecting them was added later.

These images were taken with a Canon 24mm Tilt/Shift, a special lens which can be used to get straight vertical lines for tall buildings, rather than the “tenting” usually seen with a normal wide lens.
