A couple of extra shots before leaving the Museum. It is possible to get behind the waterfall alongside the terrace to photograph Parliament Hill. It has been awhile since I've last done so.
Back at the top of the stairs, a look out at the grounds and the Ottawa River before departing.
Heading across the Alexandria Bridge back for Ottawa, I like incorporating the bridge into photographs, framing images of the city beyond.
In this case, that includes framing Nepean Point, and the statue of Champlain.
I finish with a view of a scene I can never get tired of photographing.
Lovely photos. The view in the last photo is stunning.ReplyDelete
The second and last photos are heavenly.ReplyDelete
Your intimate relationship with these scenes comes through in your 'native' photos somehow, WilliamReplyDelete
always interesting to get behind a waterfallReplyDelete
Beautiful views from the bridge. I like the way you've used it as a frame.ReplyDelete
Kind of like the Disneyland of the north only better. :-)ReplyDelete
I can imagine running through that waterfall on a hot day!ReplyDelete
Stunning views and such great info. thanks so muchReplyDelete
Super Museum of History shots Both here and last post William, I can see why you never tire of that last view, pretty special!ReplyDelete
Getting behind waterfalls is always cool!ReplyDelete
Wonderful views from here.ReplyDelete
I'm going to be the oddball here. I like the first shot best.ReplyDelete
@Orvokki: it was a pleasant day!ReplyDelete
@Cloudia: I do love living in this part of the world, despite those pesky politicians!
@Gerald: it is, yes. The design of this waterworks terrace, which I presume must come from the architect Douglas Cardinal, suits the museum well.
@Halcyon: of the interprovincial bridges here, the Alexandria's my favourite.
@Revrunner: that's one way of looking at it!
@Janis: I've put my head under on a hot day!
@MB: you're welcome.
@Grace: it certainly is.
@Jose: even when they're artificial!
These are some fine shots. I do like the shot along side the waterfall.ReplyDelete
Wonderful shots of the waterfall and the bridge with nice views over Ottawa.ReplyDelete
I think you have one of the most beautiful cities on the continent! And your pics are magnificent - especially the panoramas!ReplyDelete
I love the capture of water in the first photo! How fun you can go behind the waterfall. The view in the last photo is incredible!ReplyDelete
Love that last shot, William!ReplyDelete
The first and the last photos are my favourites!ReplyDelete
Your last photo is impressive. When you enlarge it you can see the locks. I notice that some high rises are now being built.ReplyDelete
That last scene, in particular, is terrific.ReplyDelete
i like the dripping water shot!ReplyDelete
Impressive structure, great view!ReplyDelete
I completely understand why you never tire of that view...ReplyDelete
i love checking out how bridges are built. i love the old ones that have such amazing details on their architecture. love the cityscape view. ( :ReplyDelete
@Norma: different strokes for different folks!ReplyDelete
@Jan: the last time I photographed coming over the bridge was probably in winter time.
@Tamago: thank you!
@Nancy: they do seem popular.
@Red: actually those cranes are in place for the work going on at Parliament Hill.
@Tex: I do too.
@Marianne: it certainly is... a lot of character to that bridge.
@VP: I particularly like having a section for pedestrian traffic.
@Geoff: it's one of my favourite spots in the area, crossing that bridge either way.
@Beth: this one's had restoration work done on it, but it dates back quite a long while.
The last image is so inviting!ReplyDelete
The museum is such a fantastic place: outside as well as the inside. Great photos.ReplyDelete
I love the water in your first shot! :)ReplyDelete
How cool to get behind a waterfall!ReplyDelete
Your views are gorgeous. I would never tire of that last one either.
Neat looking bridge! Love the first and last shots too.ReplyDelete
Very nice views!ReplyDelete
I am fascinated over those bridges you took William.ReplyDelete
Love the water one.ReplyDelete
This bridge reminds me of Liberty Bridge in Budapest. Even the statue close to the bridge ... I will show you tomorrow in my Budapest blog :)ReplyDelete
@Tammie: thank you!ReplyDelete
@Mari: it is indeed.
@Linda: so do I.
@Kay: thank you.
@Pamela: that they are.
