Autumn Glory

This tree is in Centretown, looking quite splendid in red during October.

This is the same tree as above in close up, taken a few days later after the peak of its colours.

A short walk away from the first location, this row of trees lines the north side of Dundonald Park, looking west.

Compare the above with this one, in the same park on another day, but looking east instead along the north side.

I took these two shots on Victoria Island, which is one of several islands on the Ottawa River upstream from Parliament Hill. The fall colours on this particular morning were bright and vibrant. I have a post in December about a nearby spot on this island.

This is Richmond Landing, situated very close by, which I'll also be showing in a post of its own in December. There's a monument down there in the shadow of Parliament Hill, the Supreme Court, and Library And Archives Canada, but I wanted to highlight the fall colours here first.

I was down at City Hall one day, and the red-pink of the changing colours on this bush caught my eye.

The trees around the complex were all changing. This shot takes in the newer wing of City Hall.

I finish with a view of Parliament Hill on a gloomy afternoon, with the trees on the slope in a rash of colours overlooking the Rideau Canal. I'll still have the odd fall shot here and there as part of other posts, but this concludes my focused look at autumn for the year.
