Carrying on down the path on the Museum's property takes us past this waterway, where the water from the fountains above descend towards the Ottawa River.
The path leads to this bed of tulips by the river, named for Malak Karsh, the landscape photographer and founder of the Tulip Festival. One of his most famous photographs was taken from this spot, with Parliament Hill and the Chateau Laurier prominent on the other side. This year there were two types of tulips in the bed. Nearby was a tulip in the brush, a reminder of a previous year- probably replanted by a squirrel.
There are some very romantic photos.ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos of the tulips, bridge and river view.ReplyDelete
I like the river view and the garden of the museum.ReplyDelete
Parliament Hill is so impressive. Funny tulip in the brush. I love that shot with the bridge and the river and the boat.ReplyDelete
Some beautiful scenery there. The river views are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Such beautiful photos! I can sit there and spend time just watching the river :-)ReplyDelete
Love the close up detail in photo #1. It looks like you are getting ready for the July Theme Day.ReplyDelete
I didn't know they named the park for him! I dated someone (between husbands) who worked for Karsch a billion years ago!ReplyDelete
you know how i always enjoy your photography, William, i always admire this city you live in & love. i appreciate it so. the city line. so amazing!! ( :ReplyDelete
That one red tulip looks lonely....ReplyDelete
Those red and white tulips are very attractive.ReplyDelete
I've always liked the bridge that shows up to the left in some of your photos. Great views across the river.ReplyDelete
The grey sky resulted in quite moody shots of the tulips and the river.ReplyDelete
A moody atmospheric post today, William. Never knew Karsh's first name!ReplyDelete
The tulips are in full bloom!ReplyDelete
@Nancy: thank you.
@Marianne: this is a pleasant area for a walk.
@Lowell: it is a classic Canadian view.
@Bill: it is a good sized river with a tremendous amount of history.
@Tamago: it is well worth spending time at.
@Janis: I think I have all but one shot done for the theme day.
@Jennifer: they probably worked for the other Karsh. Yousef was the portrait photographer. The two brothers were both renowned, but Malak chose landscapes as his subject.
@Norma: it does, yes.
@Sharon: they are!
@Red: that is the Alexandria.
@Jan: it did, yes.
@Cloudia: odds are you might be thinking of the portrait taking Karsh brother, Yousef, who used his surname only professionally. Malak as a landscape photographer used his first name professionally.
@Linda: they were!
Schöne Bilder vom Fluss und rot weiße Tulpen.ReplyDelete

What a perfect backdrop those parliment buildings make.ReplyDelete
I sure have a lot of catching up to do. That I have missed.ReplyDelete
Beautiful here your pictures.
Great display William, I particularly like the first picture though with the architecture contrasting to the pond...ReplyDelete
Beautiful! I just love that second photo.ReplyDelete
I could sit there and sip tea and read, all day.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Malak. What a legacy to leave in addition to his images.ReplyDelete
@Marleen: it was.
@RedPat: it is ideal for the photographer.
@Tex: it is!
@Janey: I enjoy photographing from here.
