Your first comment says "You are a lucky guy". A quote by Steven Leacock comes to mind, he said "I am a great believer in luck, and I find that the harder I work, the more luck I have." Your work shows through.
Awsome, one of the very best. It is one thing to get great scenry, another to get great wild life, but to get the two together is rare thing.
Your photos are among the best on Google Earth, this one gets a 9 out 10, you need to level the water line with Photoshop, then it gets a 10 out of 10.
I didn't realize that. Thanks Steve!
Your photo is very nice! I guess we don't need two shots of the same bridge there.
It crosses the Salmon River (just barely visible in the picture) on the south side of Tamworth. When in down town Tamworth, there are two roads heading out of town to the south. Take the western one. Also, you will see their original train station, painted hot pink on the same road. The railway bed runs along the south side of it. I have posted pictures of all 5 BQ stations and the repair station in Tweed on Panaramio, and thus Google Earth.
Have you gone into my albums of the various railways on Panaramio? I have dozens of pictures of BQ and CNoR and 45 other local railways. I only started this last summer. Check out the many stations and bridges too
In the albums, on the right side in Panaramio, at the bottom of a list of a dozen, in alphabetical order, at the bottom of the list, you can open all 116 albums. Go down to the R's for railways, and find "Railway bridges" "Railway stations" "Railways ABCD"
Check them out, I have had a lot of fun doing them. Just this week without leaving home, I discovered that I had posted a section of the CNoR railway at Key Harbour on Georgian Bay, I posted a picture of the docks at the end of the railway. It is on Google earth too.

That was the Whitby, Port Perry and Lindsay Railway bridge built in 1877. It doubled with the Ontario and Quebec Railway here. They merged just to the west of here.
Cormorants remind me of what people do to the environment, and it is not always pretty. I read that Small Mouth Bass feed on the Round Gobies and are doing very well. The bottom of the lake is littered with millions of this invasive species. The local bass tournaments are setting new records for large and abundant bass.
It is now an important, privatly own nature reserve and home to breeding terns. Also a place used for scientific research.
Thanks for the correction, I accept 10 lashings with a wet noodle. The only person who never makes mistakes is the person that does nothing. I will continue making misteaks. Hope you enjoy them.
I try to take my viewers back to the time the buildings and railways were built, to experience it as it was then. I don't know of anyone else attempting that. I have now tracked down 45 ghost railways in eastern Ontario and posted pictures of what is left of them. It is amazing what else I find along the way.
