Falls on Barron River in Algonquin Park

(photo by Bob: 2015-05-06) 

These are the falls depicted in the sketch, The Waterfall. However, the photograph does not correctly capture the angle of view of the sketch. The sketch shows the main flow of the river above the falls (the thin white line through the trees). This indicates that the sketch was done from a position at about the same elevation as the top of the falls (approaching a side view), not from the bottom of the falls where this photograph was taken. However, the modern falls are largely obscured by vegetation at the top and thus the angle of view of the sketch is no longer available.
