Twilight Falls Over The City

I have some sunset shots today. This is a view over the Rideau Canal from the Bank Street Bridge. The  canal was closed for skaters at this point, but the deep cold of the first part of March had, at the time, done a good job of firming up the ice again.


These western views, on two different days, looks over the skyline in Old Ottawa South. They're about the same time of day- the difference is that one was taken before the switchover to Daylight Saving Time, and the second was taken the day after.


I went to the National Gallery in March to take in the Alex Janvier retrospective one more time- it ends on Easter Weekend. After my tour of the exhibit and the permanent galleries, I looked out the window in the glass tower for a sunset view over the Ottawa River and Gatineau. I'll be taking you on another visit of the Gallery in a few days.


Outside, I took more shots of the last light of day as I headed across from the Gallery into Major's Hill Park. Parliament Hill really stood out in the dying light of day.
