Colours And Geese

I'm finishing today with my photos taken in October around Rideau Falls, which include the John McCrae memorial, and more of those geese.


The view across the Ottawa River to Gatineau is lovely this time of year, and the same applies to the west branch of the Rideau Falls.


I finish with this view of the National Research Council labs, which border Rideau Falls on the west side. Tomorrow I have another subject for Remembrance Day (though autumn colours feature there as well), but after that I have more fall colours to come.

  1. The National Research Council labs, give a feeling of loneliness.

  2. I think the view across the Ottawa River would be beautiful any time of year! Super shots, William. The geese...well, they are really messy! I'd prefer they stay off of our golf courses, but they don't seem to get the message. :)

  5. You have some beautiful colors along the Rideau Canal, William. In a few months, these scenes will be covered in white and ice, so nice to remember these.

  6. I really have to visit Ottawa again, such a nice place, I have not been there for many years and I'm only a short hop down the 401.

  8. Watching the beauty of such a river is never boring.
    A lot of geese have arrived here during the last week to stay for the winter.

  9. You have great colors in Ottawa. We've made perfect places for Canada geese. We give them lots of food and a very safe environment.

  10. I love the colours and reflections in your photos, William, and of course, I am always happy to see our Canada geese. :)

  15. @Tomas: at least on that day, what with it being closed for a holiday.

    @Lowell: I don't mind them messing up golf courses! :)

    @Beth: I think they're gone from here. Haven't seen or heard them in a couple of weeks.

    @Tanya: it's a pleasant honk.

    @Karen: thanks!

    @Beatrice: it won't take long for the snow and ice to arrive.

    @Shammickite: a good idea for the big anniversary year next year to visit.

    @Sharon: thanks!

    @Jan: mostly the birds leave here, with the exception of those who are year round residents.

    @Red: they must enjoy this park!

    @Linda: these geese are real characters.

    @Marleen: they have such a distinctive honk.

    @Pat: they're well spread in many places.

    @Bill: it definitely is.

    @RedPat: it's not quite so warm here- though that might be the way I'm feeling right now!

  19. Gorgeous colors. It looks like you have as many geese as the lakes in Washington.

  20. @Norma: they're real characters.

    @Eve: there were a lot of them, but that's to be expected that time of year.

    @Dianne: neither do I.

    @Tex: it's a wonderful place to visit.

    @Mari: they do tend to start congregating in early October to prepare for the flight south. Usually during the summer they're in smaller groups.

  21. Geese sure like to hang around with other geese. I showed one "geese convention" photo within the past month and saw another place covered with geese that I didn't photograph.

  22. You've found a lot of color. Nice! I suppose those geese are heading south by now.

  23. Beautiful scenery and the geese want to enjoy the view too!

  24. The statue is such a creative figure. A moving representation. And love the intense blues of the skies.

  25. Beautiful autumn images, the National Research labs are pretty impressive William.

  26. Really beautiful photos.
    Our geese have already fled.
    In the summer they leave in one's wake forever their own "trademark" Every place is messy.
