Sunset Over Sunnyside

Experimenting today. Sunnyside Avenue is the main east-west street through Old Ottawa South, and at this time of year, the sun is setting nearly even with the street. Come summer, the sun will be setting much further away from here. I took this as I crossed the street heading back to campus. My place is a short walk beyond this intersection, in the block to the left, so we're close to home.

I am linking this to Skywatch Friday.


  1. That's excellent!
    I don't really get the chance to catch sunsets because there are no sunsets to see, it's been so grey lately and of course it's dark when I get back from work...

  2. Looks like a scene out of a science fiction movie !

  3. One might think the apocalypse was further down that road!

  4. You got me thinking with this one William... Must notice the point of the setting sun around my neck of the woods :)

  5. @Ciel: winter can have those long grey days, after all, seemingly without end.

    @Stuart: I hadn't thought of it like that!

    @Tamera: thank you.

    @Chrissy: rules are meant to be bent!

    @Hamilton: with a white horse and a pale rider too...

    @Krisztina: thank you.

    @Grace: I've got to think of other good sunset locations myself.

    @Jane and Chris: at this time of year, yes!

    @Inna: thank you.

  6. I love that part of the city with all the big, old homes. Gorgeous photo.

  7. Even with the warm color of the sun, one can see the chill of a winter day in this image. Nicely done. Thanks for stopping by Driller's Place.

  8. I've noticed this in my town too. Pretty soon I'll be driving right into the rising sun in the morning.

  9. That's pretty! The street is on fire!

  10. Nice shot! Wouldn't want to be driving toward it though!

  11. @Deb: it's a pleasant area to live in.

    @Driller: it was a cold day when I took this one. Thank you!

    @Sharon: that's a nuisance, first thing in the morning...

    @Halcyon: it does have that effect.

    @Mo: and that effect too!

    @Cheryl: certainly not! You need shades!

    @Lauren: thank you!

    @RedPat: thanks!

    @Kathy: thank you!

  12. That light could blind a person! Good effect.

  13. wait, i need my sunglasses!! i love this!!

  14. Wow! I sure wouldn't want to have to drive toward that sunset, but it sure makes for an awesome photo. Great capture. Thank you for visiting my blog and your kind comment. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  15. Love this one.

    Sunnyside--your old neighborhood?

  16. What a great shot!

  17. @Mari: that's how it can be in winter.

    @Tanya: thank you!

    @Nita: thanks!

    @Norma: definitely now my old neighbourhood. It's strange to look at this shot after the fact, thinking of the insufferable prick who bought that house and made life very difficult for myself and other tenants for months on end. In an ideal world, that bastard would throw himself in front of a train. Is it obvious I disliked him?

    @Anonymous: thanks!

    @MB: thank you!
