Water, Île des Sœurs (July, 2001)

One of a series that I took that day at "Nun's Island". Something I've always loved about Montréal is the combination of parks and fresh water (the city proper is on an island, not unlike Manhattan). There are a good number of urban parks to begin with (and "nature parks", as mentioned in this earlier post), and quite a few of them seem to incorporate the river as a central feature, including Parc Jean Drapeau (formerly the more-attractively-and-appropriately-named Parc des Îles), Île de la Visitation, and Pointe-aux-Prairies.
