Oh this is wonderful!! I love the message rising from your gredt title that supports this beautiful example of what man can do in concert with nature rather than opposed to it: Beautiful structures that compliment the water and trees and environment. The music abounds in this Magnigicent composition that travels so wonderfully!

@Willem: This valley normally gets quite vivid, but when I took this image it was past that phase of colours but I still liked the mood. Thanks a lot, Willem.

a lovely delicate curve and its mirror image together with beautiful autumn colours. Nice title too. We could do with a bit more untroubled water in the world today

@grouser: Well said and I am in full agreement about what our world could do with. Thanks much.

The colours are wondrous especially in my climate today. And the bridges,
I remember being on the Don so many years ago when they flew the
spaceship over Toronto on top of a massive plane, before they made all of
those beautiful trips to space. Wish that I had a camera that day ! I just
love this panorama like landscape, 5*****'s !~

@Phil Morris: That is a fantastic memory that you have about that day; the photos would have been so cool. I'm a fan of the Don Valley for cycling and walks. I hope it never gets the condo treatment. Many thanks, Phil.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

A wonderful image with those colors and reflections. I enjoy the shape of that footbridge.

@Steve Rice: Thanks for having a look, Steve.

Anna Cherer from LA ROCHELLE, France

Beautiful composition with the bridge ( footbridge maybe ? ) above the ( un ) troubled water, and the second bridge in the distance ! the silhouette of the passer- by, the autumn colors. it's nearly incredible to say that it's in dowtown Toronto because it looks a wild place in despite the bridges !
Once again a place to visit next time ))

@Anna Cherer: This part of downtown east has some photogenic areas, including two old cemeteries, Riverdale Farm, and the river valley. Add it to the list, and thanks for the great feedback !

Irene from San Francisco, United States
