Ever since the pulp and paper companies stopped floating logs down the Jacques-Cartier River , a group of dedicated people have been trying to re-introduce Atlantic salmon to this majestic river.They have had some good years and some bad years but the salmon are still coming back each year after the initial years of "seeding" salmon in the upper reaches of the river.
This is just one of the natural ladders the salmon would use along this river. It is right beside a much larger fall of rushing water so the sdalmon would use this easier route. Sorry I wasn't able to catch any of them leaping upstream:-)
As noted in the critiques, the original photo was too dark. I checked my library and noted I had taken two images, the first one(the original)I shot with my manual exposure compensation set too low at -2/3(My idea was to use the setting to cut the brightness of the white water) and the second shot with no exposure compensation,which adds to the brightness of the trees.

Lovely scene and trees, also the small rappids? conveyes the feeliing of this ladder you mentioned. Dof a bit soft due to f2.8 F16 should render the leaves pinsharp. Try cropping just below the white water, so you loose the dark water. This renders more mood to the picture, from the white water progressively up to darker, clear colours. Wish we had such scens here!

A pretty landscape with much of color, it is very beautiful even if the river is a little too clear.

Beutiful combination with the nature and water in order to show, how beautiful could be the autumn. I agree that the river could be more clear.

Un décor comme je les aime ! Une prise de vue tout à fait inspirante pour une huile ou un pastel ;-)
