I've taken shots from the Bank Street bridge before, and will again. Here we're looking east, and on the south side we have fall colours mixed with the trees that are still green. The building beyond with the cupola was once a convent, and is now home to the Royal College for Physicians and Surgeons.
Down at Dow's Lake, more contrasts between fall colours and the green of trees that are late in turning.
The tree below, you can just make out in the shot above: that flash of red at the top of the lake. The flowerbed before it will be filled with tulips come May.
And though I don't know how it's done, at this time of year giant pumpkins are out on display. They often end up misshapen. This one was on display downtown at the Byward Market, and someone was wise enough to put a regular pumpkin beside it to compare size. According to the papers, this one was seven hundred pounds.
I'm hoping to see a LOT of this in my favorite photoblogs!ReplyDelete
More of that fall stuff to come! I might have enough through the end of the month at this rate!Delete
700 lb?!! That is INCREDIBLE! And insane:) A brilliant find (And thank you for the comment to clarify the size of groundhogs - cat-sized is perfect:)ReplyDelete
It's huge! I keep wondering how they do it.Delete
The groundhogs we have here on campus tend to scamper away when the real rush of students start up in the fall.
You're already getting fall colors! And I love those huge pumpkins!ReplyDelete
Usually we start seeing the first colours turning here in late September.Delete
Two of my most favorite things - fall leaves and pumpkins! I'm taking the girls to the pumpkin patch this weekend. Can't wait to take some pics!ReplyDelete
