The Welland Canal locks allow large ships over 200 yards in length that may weigh approximately 30,000 tons to travel between Lake Ontario and Lake Erie in spite of the 326.5 ft. difference in elevation. The Welland Canal locks lift and lower these ships with the help of gravity and large quantities of water. The force of gravity is used to fill or drain a lock moving about 20 million gallons of water in about 11 minutes. It is this movement of water that actually lifts or lowers a ship in a lock. The force of gravity is so strong that it draws this water a distance of 27 miles from lake Erie to Lake Ontario filling and draining the 8 locks in between. (wellandcanal.com)
The Sun is just coming. The Nature is waking up. All the light is in the Sky.
Beautiful morning time. The sun rises pretty early this time of the year. We are almost at the summer solstice.
On my way to work from the window of my car I met the sun in this beautiful shape and colour. Unfortunately, while driving it was impossible to make the high quality picture by iPhone, but don’t take the eyes off impossible too.
The other thing caught my eyes this morning was the Goose Family right beside the entrance of my company.
It was just quiet morning hours, when there is no any move on the canal. Ships will come later.
…But tomorrow may rain, so
I’ll follow the sun.
The end of October. Bright and frosty morning. Unbelievable! Last Friday we had +30C and today in the morning we had -4C.
Right after sunrise when the light is still dim and the dew is on the grass and plants Roses are fresh and beautiful! The Rose Garden in Og2 Park in Oakville nice place to enjoy this time of the day.
The hot day is coming. The only time to enjoy cool and fresh air is early morning. Beside of that the beautiful sunrise is making your day! Peaceful and Tranquil Time of the day!
The shortest night of the year has gone and the longest day is coming. Goodbye the summer solstice!
