Today I launched a new photo pool on flickr, with the theme "Ottawa River". http://flickr.com/groups/ottawariver/
The guidelines at the outset for image submission to this group are as follows: From it's source to it's mouth, images that demonstrate the qualities of the river: size, ecology, beauty, uses, fauna and flora, uniqueness. The river must be the primary subject. People can be included if they are integral to the Ottawa River theme. My hope is that members will focus on the natural aspects of the river, recognizing that people can be components in the wise and sustainable use of the resource. But the river should be the main subject.
