In the Barron Canyon in Algonquin Park

(photo by Bob: 2014-09-24) 

Since this is the only island in the canyon, this location is not in doubt. But it is tricky to match the sketch with a photograph. The challenges are three-fold:

the present tree cover of both the island and canyon walls; the shape of the underlying island is no longer evident.

the lighting whereby the island is in shade while the far canyon wall is sunlit (if you photograph it when the island is sunlit, it disappears against the background);

and we suspect that it was painted from a tethered canoe that was drifting over a small area and confusing the various lines of sight.
