Whenever my wife and I visit eastern Ontario, I find time to visit this army town and take in the beautiful Canadian Shield landscapes. This river is a favourite subject, especially at this spot because of the photogenic rapids. On this day, the only colour was goldy-brown in the water (you can see it here: https://bit.ly/PetawawaRiverRapids), so it was an easy decision to go fully black-and-white. I also decided to go with a fast shutter speed in order to stop the motion of the water and provide an energetic, almost violent contrast to the gentle snowy landscape. Nikon D7100, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
