One Last Blast Of The Fall Colours

I took these shots on the first Sunday in November. Late fall colours here seemed to extend later this fall, and yellow seemed to feature prominently.

This view from Plaza Bridge of Parliament Hill, the Canal, and the Bytown Museum is dominated by those yellows. The last time I showed views here, red colours were dominating the trees.

I then headed over to Major's Hill Park, where the fall colours stood out among landmarks like the Connaught Building and the US Embassy, and the statue of Colonel By.

Leaving the park took me past the Peacekeeping Monument, which features the spires of Notre Dame beyond it.


  1. Very, very pretty.

    We had more snow this week but nothing stuck.

  2. All the leaves have gone here by now.

  3. Those Burning Bushes arme so red! All gone here.

  4. Soon a pretty memory William, but captured here for always!

  5. @Whisk: we had a few flakes yesterday.

    @Marianne: they're gone here too.

    @Marleen: they were!

    @Furry Gnome: ah, that's the name of them.

    @Grace: it's quite different now.

  6. Inspired grounds. Thanks William. Wishing you all the best!

  7. I suppose these beautiful leaves have gone with the wind by now. I especially like that shot with Notre Dame's spire in the background. Very nice!

  8. Our autumn color is lingering and I will miss it dearly. I love the perspective on that first photo!


  9. That tree behind the statue is looking very spectacular.

  10. Gorgeous colours in your photos, William!

  11. It looks like it was a beautiful day! All the leaves are gone now - so sad!

  12. @Cloudia: thanks!

    @Lowell: yes, they're all gone. I enjoy photographing that church from many angles, but particularly with this monument in the foreground.

    @Janis: we're more or less waiting on winter. We did have snow, but it's generally gone. It'll be back.

    @Sharon: it was. I can't recall if it was a maple or an oak.

    @Linda: they were indeed.

    @Bill: I agree.

    @RedPat: surprisingly good weather for a November day.

  13. I have enjoyed all of your autumn photos. Our leaves mostly went straight to brown this year because of the drought.

  14. We can still see some fall colors around, but the high winds we had last week have pretty much put the kibosh on fall.

  15. i love all the fall leaves. gorgeous!! so lovely!! my fave season ever! ( :

  16. Blazes of colors! Wonderful views all.

  17. We had a long autumn but it was still too short!

  18. Lovely autumn photos… hardly I remember it..:)

  19. Wonderful to see the changing colours.
    We'll have to get used to naked trees untill next spring.

  20. We're finally seeing some color here, but yours are better!

  21. Beautiful colors and photos William!

  22. The colours lasted a long time. They said they wouldn't, due to the drought!!!

  23. @Lois: we do tend to get good fall colours.

    @Revrunner: ours are at their peak in October. Long gone now, beneath snow.

    @Beth: thank you!

    @Mari: thanks!

    @Kay: thank you.

    @Linda: we must enjoy fall colours as we get them.

    @Orvokki: thanks!

    @Jan: here they're bare now.

    @Norma: we're lucky here.

    @Pat: thank you.

    @Jennifer: they can surprise you.
