I've shown you this place from inside, so why not the exterior? The Ottawa Convention Centre looms over Colonel By Drive and the Rideau Canal, a graceful curve of glass. I took this shot from the nearby Mackenzie King bridge, and in the background you can see the Government Conference Centre and the Chateau Laurier.
A full view can be had across the Canal, from the terrace at the National Arts Centre. These shots were taken after the water levels on the Canal were lowered for the winter season.
