Sunrise, Sunset, And Shadow Upon The Canal

I was passing over the Rideau Canal at Bronson Avenue one morning in February and liked the light of the sunrise. The ice on the Canal is mostly gone by now- though not all of it.


Further east, at Bank Street, I photographed the light in the sky to the west at dusk some days later, adding in a black and white shot while I was at it.

  5. @Linda: indeed.

    @Tomas: I agree.

    @Lauren: in this case the Canal was still solid. The reflection comes more perhaps from the regular flooding of the ice.

    @Marianne: I am only up for one in winter.

    @Revrunner: eventually!

    @Grace: it's quite different other times of the year. I wonder if I can get a sunrise in the summer. I'd have to be up pretty bloody early!

    @Mo: well, this was a month ago, but the temperatures this morning are below the freezing mark still.

  16. @Linda: usually with a sunset I prefer some clouds in the sky, but in this case, that last light of the day beckoned me.

  21. Nice, but the desert sunrises and sunsets are far more colorful. The first one is quite a dramatic shot though.
