    Thank you all for the generous comments. This was pure luck, since I normally take the highway but it was Friday and we'd knocked off work a bit early so we decided to take the scenic route home. This is a big river and I've never seen it this calm before. I have photos from the 60's of this river filled with logs but they don't use that method of transport anymore.

Phillip: The closest locate I can get on Google Maps is https://maps.google.com/maps?q=wakefield+pq&ll=45.609232,-75.897345&spn=0.025158,0.053043&hnear=Wakefield,+Les+Collines-de-l%27Outaouais+Regional+County+Municipality,+Quebec,+Canada&t=h&z=15&layer=c&cbll=45.609232,-75.897345&panoid=6v_PQmGWZLZsg6VMdoDHAw&cbp=12,30.36,,0,-0.58

However you can't see the river on Google view. If you go to https://maps.google.com/maps?q=wakefield+pq&ll=45.609232,-75.897345&spn=0.025158,0.053043&hnear=Wakefield,+Les+Collines-de-l%27Outaouais+Regional+County+Municipality,+Quebec,+Canada&t=h&z=15&layer=c&cbll=45.609232,-75.897345&panoid=6v_PQmGWZLZsg6VMdoDHAw&cbp=12,30.36,,0,-0.58

you can see down the river and there are some photos of the area attached to Google including one of the steam train. There is a great covered bridge here - I will post a shot in the outtakes.

Not sure if you can see it but there is a large tree that grows right through the deck in front of the cottage.

    The pattern that the reflective shapes make in this photo is quite striking. I love the color and crispness of this photo. Great job!

    LOVE this image! The light and the stillness of the water is just lovely! The composition and exposure is perfect! It reminds me of home. In my top picks! Good Luck!

    This really epitomizes the best of cottage country. I feel like I want to sit down with a cup of coffee and just enjoy the view.

    This is just stunning. I'd have this printed large hanging on my wall if it was mine. Very well captured. The reflection is perfect and I like the composition. I envy you. I'd love to step in this photo.
