Re: Picture Identification Game

Iíve seen the same pipe construction in St Vincent I think. Chateau Belair IIRC. But the heron is not one from the Western Hemisphere I think.

So somewhere in Europe, Iím gonna suggest itís at some portion of a canal that is developed as a park or heritage site? I would guess either France or Germany.

Re: Picture Identification Game

Before someone beats me to it, I think itís a lock in North America or Europe.

Re: Picture Identification Game

I knew it was the Rideau canal but it took a bit of google earth to find Jones Falls. Google earth is so cool...this view is almost identical to your picture..

Re: Picture Identification Game

Absolutely! This is my local cruising grounds, Jones Falls on the Rideau Lakes.

When this dam was built in 1831 it was the tallest dam in North America.
