Fall Colours Within Ottawa

This street is in Centretown, with Dundonald Park at the left.


While these fall colours are in Lowertown.


I was passing through the campus at the University of Ottawa late one afternoon. These shots are from there.


These views are from the same day, taken on the Laurier Avenue Bridge over the Rideau Canal. The first view looks north towards Parliament Hill and the Chateau Laurier, while the second view looks south towards Cartier Square.


This view on another day is from the east bank of the Canal, north of Laurier Avenue; the sculptures you see below the trees are a set I've shown before here, though for the life of me I can't find the post.


I finish with two views at the National War Memorial. Around the beginning of the month, the construction walls were removed from the outer perimeter on the north side, so it's possible to at least get a look at the Memorial; the upkeep work there is nearly at an end. I'll have more fall colours after the November theme day, but we'll be looking at a few other things until then.
