Humber River Bridge (1916) at Old Mill - October

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This is a very old bridge (1916) over Humber River, not much traffic on it. Only people who live near by or go the park along the river are using it.

I love biking along the river and in September/October, you can see the Salmon jump over the dam, to travel upstream to spawn. Occasionaly, you can see deer, heron and egrets.

Fortunately, some of the areas of the city were set aside as park. Don river valley was destroyed, when the city decided to put a highway right through it!

Now, there is a big condominum being build near the bridge, so the park may be busier!

Autumn is such a wonderful time of year, making pretty scenes even prettier! Beautiful colors, powerful clouds, and perfect composition! A splendid, most pleasing shot!

Hello Hal and Mary Alice,

Thanks for your supporting by my contest photo and for your Vote and like and wonderful comments.

Hal, Special thanks for the YS.

Mary Alice, I would be a fool, thinking that I could win the PA contest. There are many photos, which deserve to win more than mine. Also there are photographs, which will win, despite being an just an average photo.

I want to add visibility to my photos mainly in the area where I live and there is also this selfish pride to see my photos being popular.

Shaikh Aslam Goni, sometimes less is more,

There is no need to take this space with comments, which clearly do not mean anything. I appreciate comments, which come from actually looking at the photographs.

What you write, is a lot of nonsense! Specially, if the identical comment goes to everybody, who participate in this contest. I prefer somebody who simply write Voted, to this verbiage.

I DO NOT WANT YOUR VOTE, since it is insincere and meaningless.

Hello Hello Afrocan, Luca, Meryem, ah-pong_, David W., Jozsi, Kosmas, Renato and giannap10,

Thanks for your stopping by my contest photo and for your Vote and like and wonderful comments.

Tomas from Toronto

Sorry, if you find my previous comment to harsh, but Aslam comment just rubbed me the wrong way. There is no need for this! We all have different reason why we participate in this contest.

It is nice to win, but this is trying to hard and going overboard.
