Evening Mood

One evening there was a low cloud deck and fog enveloping the Capital. Parliament Hill, which can usually be seen from this point of view, was barely visible in the mist beyond the National Arts Centre. I walked along the bridge and took photos of the NAC and Canal, and across to the Convention Centre


The mist was also present down at Lansdowne Park, where crowds coming out of a hockey game were filing out past the Aberdeen Pavilion, one of the few worthwhile elements still preserved after that gang of thieves otherwise known as developers came in here and turned the place into a big box retail monstrosity (side note to OSEG: you guys are dirt bag con artist thieves. Drop dead). As you can see, a Christmas tree was under construction out front.

  4. Ottawa, at night, is wonderful and mysterious at the same time.

  6. Those evening shots evoke a feeling of solitude. Love when the color of the lights shines through the fog.

  12. I always love evening shots. Goes back to taking a night flight out of New York City. Manhattan looks like a huge circuit board at night.

  14. These are all wonderful. You've set several scenes for a scary mystery novel...digital photography is best at night, I think.

  15. Do you get much fog, William? We will get it if we're too warm and have snow or moisture. And it's pretty bad to drive in.
    Nice shots of the city.

    @Norma: I'd enjoy seeing that.

    @Nancy: thanks!

    @Lowell: I agree.

    @Lorelei: there are days we get foggy spells. Usually it lifts by ten in the morning, but sometimes it's around all day.

    @Marleen: I do as well.

    @RedPat: they did!
