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.

  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!

  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.
