The first day of the month is a theme day for members of City Daily Photo, and for August, the theme is My City's Skyline, as chosen by Tamera of Colorado Springs Daily Photo. You can see how others are taking on this theme here.
I have several selections. This first one was taken from Nepean Point on one of those brooding days back in May, taking in the view to Parliament Hill looming over the Ottawa River.
This shot is also from May, but taken on a different day. The sculpture of an Anishinaabe scout is placed here at the north end of Major's Hill Park, one of a number of shots I took. I showed other takes on it in my post from yesterday.
This is a view I haven't shown before, looking towards the downtown core from the south. I came up to the Billings Bridge transit station one day back in June and photographed the view. The complex in the foreground is the Billings Bridge mall.
On the first weekend of June, we had Doors Open here in Ottawa, a tour of many buildings being opened to the public. One of my stops was on the Ottawa River, at the Ottawa Rowing Club. Taking leave of the place, I photographed this view of the river, with the skyline of Gatineau, Quebec on the other side.
This view is close to the Bayview transit station, looking east towards the downtown core one morning last month. Looking at the left side of the jumble of buildings, you might make out the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill.
And I finish with these shots from Canada Day, when I stopped in at the Museum of Nature. The glass tower at its center is called the Queens' Lantern, and gives a good view north up Metcalfe Street. The second view looks west towards the Landscapes of Canada Gardens, which I featured a few days ago.
