Last weekend I was able to go for a skate on the Rideau Canal. I’d only been a couple of times before, most recently in 2009 on a trip with my college class. I’ve only been living in Ottawa for a year now, so I didn’t get to grow up with the world’s largest skating rink close by.

So last Saturday I strapped on my Bauer Chargers, took my DSLR with me and hoped like hell that I didn’t fit a patch of rough ice, take a tumble and destroy my camera.

Fortunately I stayed on my feet the whole time, and was able to get some nice shots. Check it out.
