I wanted a clear day for a more recent update from Major's Hill Park and Nepean Point, but on Easter Sunday, when I was downtown, something caught my eye. There was a very low lying fog on the Ottawa River, something that seemed to make the Gatineau shore seem to be floating above a cloud deck.
Colonel By seemed rather gloomy under the conditions. Most of the snow had been gone by this point, though there were the odd piles in shady spots, particularly on the slopes of Parliament Hill.
Coming up to Champlain's statue at the top of Nepean Point, the views around Ottawa and Gatineau were quite different from a sunny day. The effect looking east, towards the Macdonald Cartier Bridge, had the same effect of looking as if the bridge was floating in the clouds.
All in all, a very different mood from yesterday's post, but the fog made it irresistible.
I love the moods you've captured here. All softness in colors and forms. Very nice!ReplyDelete
True, fog is a great weather condition for photos. It gives the river a mysterious look here.ReplyDelete
Gotta love that hat. :-)ReplyDelete

Beautiful foggy view. You captured them beautifully!ReplyDelete
We are usually obsessed with bright light or enough light. Dull or foggy can show a different aspect of the same thing.ReplyDelete
Beautiful and dreamy, William! I love the mood in your photos!ReplyDelete

Gloomy is a good description. It reminds me of the Pacific Northwest. I fled from all that dark, cloud gloom.ReplyDelete
Fog can and does certainly add to the atmosphere of photographs ...ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
