Looking for the site of the Tom Thomson painting Woodland Waterfall

(photo by Bob: 2015-05-06) 

This photo illustrates the difficulty of getting a modern photograph of the exact scene depicted in the sketch. Here Diana is comparing a copy of the sketch with the waterfall from our current best estimate of where Thomson sat to execute his sketch. The minor flow is just visible in the near mid distance with the major flow a little further back. But clearly the modern view is completely obstructed.
