The first day of each month is a theme day for members of City Daily Photo. For December, the theme is Transitions, as selected by Tanya at Around Roanoke. You can see how other photobloggers are taking on this theme by clicking here.
For this theme, I decided to take views from the Bank Street Bridge over the Rideau Canal for comparisons over time. In each case, the first view looks west and the second view looks east. To start, this was the view in mid-September.
These views are from early October, when the fall colours were coming in.
These two were from mid-October, when the fall colours were more pronounced, and the water in the Canal was being lowered for the winter.
And these were a few days later in October.
This final pair was taken just a few days ago, on a snowy Sunday- the same day I featured in my post yesterday, actually. The staircases have been set in place for the skating season yet to come. The water level will be raised a bit before then.
