Today I'm beginning to show some fall colours, with an interruption at month's end for Hallowe'en and the theme day. I can always count on this maple to be among the earliest to show fall colours. It's along a quiet street in Centretown.

The Little Italy neighbourhood has for some time marked the fall by setting up harvest displays along Preston Street. This one is one of the larger ones this year, at Preston and Gladstone.

These were starting to turn early outside a home in Centretown.

A few blocks away, on another day I caught these leaves in the process of changing outside St. Peter & St. Paul's Anglican Church.

This one was on a quiet street in the Glebe.

This is a view at Dundonald Park early in the morning.

And this is at Minto Park late one afternoon.

I took this view in Jacques Cartier Park over in Gatineau while over there attending MosaiCanada.

I got these while visiting the stadium club level at Lansdowne a few days back, which I showed in yesterday's post. On the south side of the stadium, a large wooden screen wraps around the structure. I photographed fall colours through the gaps.

Here we have another view at Dundonald Park on another day early in the month, of a tree in transition.

Some days later I photographed these colours in Centretown.


  1. Hello, pretty Autumn trees and colors. It is still green around here, a few trees here and there have color.
    Enjoy your day, have a great new week!

  2. Autumn colours are always so nice to see!

  3. That's a nice sunny and colourful start of autumn.

  4. I don't think fall colours are going to be very spectacular this year, but you got some good photos. Hoping I'm wrong.

    Thank you for alerting me that our GDP isn't uploading on your blog roll. Any idea what it might be? We are baffled. Others have said the same.

    Thanks, William,


  5. Colourful leaves, blue skies, and sunshine - when these all come together, as they have done here, then Autumn shows you just how beautiful it can be.

  6. The seasons come and go so quickly these days. It will be snowing before we know it!

  7. @Francisco: thank you!

    @Eileen: thanks!

    @Marianne: that's true.

    @Jan: it is.

    @Janis: it sometimes depends on the area. I don't know what could be wrong with your site- I know it's not showing up in terms of one of the other blogs I follow, which lists a series of posts, including yours, by most recently published.

    @Tom: it certainly is.

    @Rosemary: that's true.

    @Sandi: and I'm looking forward to snow. We've actually seen the odd flake here and there in recent days.

  8. Very lovely fall colors, William. Thank you and I look forward to more. :-)

  9. Beautiful autumn colours! Have a good week!

  10. The maples are spectacular fall leaves!

  11. Love the image of leaves on the brick wall. Back now from a retreat to enjoy your photos!

  12. We are always jealous of Ontario because you get much more vivid fall colors.

  13. @DJan: more to come!

    @Nancy: thank you!

    @Marie: they are, yes.

    @Kate: thanks!

    @Red: we get some great colours here.

  14. A beautiful season for photographers. Great colours, William !

  15. Lovely autumn captures ~ like the little stand set up in Centretown ~

    Happy Monday to you,

  16. The maples seem to be really putting on a show this year but overall the change is a bit late and going slowly!

  17. Autumn is looking great with all those colours. Very nice, William!

  18. Lovely fall colours but what a shame they don't last very long.

  19. @Karl: thanks!

    @Carol: so do I.

    @RedPat: here it's mostly at peak, but I think I've taken my last fall shots for the year.

    @Bill: thank you!

    @Sallie: definitely!

    @Shammickite: they don't, but such is life.

    @Catarina: I agree!

  20. We don't have any colors yet....

  21. Nice to see all the pretty fall colors around by you. Such a pretty time of year.

  22. How shameful of you, William, photographing these ladies changing their attire. :^D

  23. I love fall colors! These are very pretty.

  24. who doesn't love some fall colors!! nice. ( ;

  25. Autumn is such a pretty time of the year, lovely series of images William 🍁

  26. Nice colors and bright sunshine helps show the changes. I also liked the still life scene with the pumpkins and hay bales, William.

  27. I just love the Autumn and the many colours this season brings us.
    Your photographs are all lovely to see, thank you.

    All the best Jan
