I am retired and exploring the world on foot, by canoe and kayak. You see and experience much more this way. No luxury resorts on some tropical beach for me.

Steve Manders's conversations

The location icon on the satellite view is accurate as is the description. What more can I say.

First of all, I have been studying ghost railways of eastern Ontario for a few years now, which is why I searched it out. I hiked to the bridge to see what dates were cast in the concrete, but I already knew the history of the railway. A great book on the Bay of Quinte Railway is Lost Horizons by Donald M. Wilson. It should be in any library. The Rathbuns of Deseronto who built the railway make a great story. I will be giving a presentation on it on April 8 in Kingston, Friday morning at 10 am if you are interested. I will also be doing a presentation on the K&P railway and the logging routes of long ago.

In the photo details on the right side, it says that I took the photo on Feb. 12, 2014. I was out getting pictures of the waterfalls on the Salmon River all frozen up.

Hi Steve, You took a picture in the winter of an old white abandoned church on Buttermilk Falls Rd. Beautiful pic :) Could you tell me the date of when you took the picture please. Thanks JaDiCoo

Hi Steve ...

... lovely colors, of course ... and shadows of dusk give glitzy Vancouver high rises an Eastern Bloc look ...

... tide and wind get all the anchored freighters pointed the same way ...

Hope you had a nice holiday season, and Best Wishes for a Happy and Peaceful 2016, Wally

It is not far north, but it is wilderness. You may have noticed a lot of photos of old railways in a documentary style, rather than photographic merit. I have tracked down 60 ghost railways in eastern Ontario and posted them on GE. I gave a presentation last April on them, and I will be doing 3 more presentations next April on some of these railways. The public is invited, I expect about 200 to attend.

Always discovering interesting places in your gallery! Cheers

Where is the exact placement? can you give a few clues at least. It is not anywhere along the highway.

The CN tower is not in Niagara Falls. Try again.
