Luskville Falls, Quebec – a Flickr Ottawa group outing
Luskville Falls is reached by a relatively short drive heading north from Ottawa along the east side of the Ottawa River. During the summer its flow rate is quite low. However, early in the Spring, when the snow melt in the Gatineau Hills is in full swing, the flow rate increases significantly and some years can produce some spectacular photographic opportunities.
On this occasion, I was visiting the falls with a group of Flickr contacts from the Ottawa area.
If you want to attract a gathering of photographers, lay down on a rock and look over the edge.
“What great shot did you see?”
“Did you drop a lens or lens cap?”
“Are you alright?”
With photographers, it is always the same questions, in the same order 🙂
The falls is actually a series of falls and rapids tumbling down the Eardley Escarpment on the southern edge of the Gatineau Hills. On some occasions, I climb the path up to the old fire tower but on this occasion I only clambered above the main, lower portion of the Falls to see what I might be able to see from that position.
Since my interest tends toward the flowers and bugs or the world, I was very happy to see that some of my Spring favourites were just coming into bloom.
