“Looking down over the locks” – Chateau Laurier by tawatts

I took this shot last night while wandering around with a number of other photographers. Another of the active photographers, Roland posted in a local Facebook group about just a casual get together to wander around and take some shots.

It was fun to be wandering around in a small group chatting about photography, and of course very safe as well. I’m looking forward to another night of this in the coming weeks.

I like the way this shot turned out, but I am going to revisit to take it again. The dock that I have to stand on to take the scene is floating, so the image is not as sharp as I would like it to be. It looked good in camera, but I’m not completely happy with it.
