Looks like one for the train. Who is your Minto? The New Zealand Minto is a civil rights man.

oooh lovely double arch, it looks almost curvy.

I now have to wonder why the river is called the curtain!

What a fine image and contribution to Sunday Bridges. The reflection really makes this photo. Superb composition.

Thanks, everyone.
In case anyone else is wondering...

* the Minto this bridge is named after was The 4th Earl of Minto who was the eighth Governor General of Canada

* Rideau Canal was so named by Samuel de Champlain in 1613 after the effect of the twin falls where it meets up with the Ottawa River
