The Peterborough Lift Lock is a boat lift located on the Trent Canal in the city of Peterborough, Ontario, Canada and is Lock 21 on the Trent-Severn Waterway.

The dual lifts are the highest hydraulic boat lifts in the world, with a lift of 19.8 m (65 ft).

Its proximity to Algonquin Provincial Park makes this protected waterway almost an Algonquin appendage, but it's a park in its own right, and for good reason. Oxtongue River – Ragged Falls contains many features of local significance. The small plunge basin at Gravel Falls demonstrates the powerful, erosive force of glacial meltwater.

Hundreds of shoes (from a collection numbering over 10,000) are on exhibit in architect Raymond Moriyama's award-winning four-storey structure, the Bata shoe museum in Toronto.

The CN Tower, located in Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada, is a communications and observation tower standing 553.3 metres (1,815 ft) tall and remains the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere, the signature icon of Toronto's skyline, and a symbol of Canada

Algonquin Provincial Park is a provincial park located between Georgian Bay and the Ottawa River in Central Ontario, Canada, mostly within the Unorganized South Part of Nipissing District. It is the oldest provincial park in Canada having been established in 1893.

Outstanding photos. Excellent composition and editing. Well done!

I have lived in Ontario for over 50 years yet you have inspired me to look at many familiar places with fresh eyes.

This work is excellent and demonstrates a good eye. I particularly like the tower shot. Where was that taken? From Roy Thomson Hall? I have been to Ragged Falls many times, but have never seen that vantage point. Great shot.
