This picture is taken in Ottawa where the Rideau Canal reaches the Ottawa River. Before you can navigate from the canal to the river you have the pass the lock-system at the end of the canal.
The picture shows the last gate before the canal reaches the Ottawa river. The rippled water above is in the Ottawa River. The water below is in the last lock of the canal and is smooth like a mirror.
The person is walking over the last gate, as I will show you tomorrow.

The line between reality above and reflection beneath is about 1/3 from the top of the scene.

The Rideau Canal, also known unofficially as the Rideau Waterway, connects the city of Ottawa, on the Ottawa River to the city of Kingston, Ontario, on Lake Ontario. It is 202
The Rideau Canal uses a lock system that is still fully functioning. The gates that let boats travel in and out of the locks last approximately 1215 years. Today they are made in Smiths Falls, Ontario, and sometimes take up to 2 months to build 1 set of gates.
