Ontario’s natural beauty is sometimes forgotten in comparison to its status as the most populated province in Canada and the home of both the nation’s capital in Ottawa and the largest city in Canada in Toronto. In his new portfolio book Beautiful Ontario, J.A. Kraulis sets his focus on the distinct landscapes of cities, waters and natural wonders that make up the province of Ontario.

Below are selected photos from the book.

The largest set of locks on the Rideau Canal system are in the centre of Ottawa, descending 24 metres from the canal to the Ottawa River.
