Major's Hill Park tends to have good fall colours. I came through here on Thanksgiving Day.
A bit further along the path in the park, I turned around and photographed Centre Block on Parliament Hill, framed by the trees.
Across from the park and the National Gallery of Canada, the Peacekeepers Monument is positioned on a large traffic circle. I liked the contrast of fall colours with the monument, which from this angle includes debris one might find in a war zone, a deliberate part of the monument's design.
I headed in the direction of New Edinburgh, which I'll start showing tomorrow. The fall colours at this spot caught my eye. The labs of the National Research Council are seen in the background.
On that same day, coming back from New Edinburgh, I passed through the campus at the University of Ottawa.
Just up the street from the above shot, I photographed across the quad towards Tabaret Hall. A careful eye might find the squirrel on the lawn.
Another day I happened to pass by the National War Memorial. This is on the northwest side of the grounds.
Taken another day, this is from the east side, and includes one of The Valiants, the series of statues and busts of figures of Canadian military history. This one is Pierre d'Iberville, the explorer, soldier, colonial administrator, and perpetual irritant to the British from the days of New France.
I came over to the Memorial to photograph the fall colours contrasting against the sentries and the monument.
This perspective is taken from the grass behind the benches on the northwest side of the Memorial.
And here is the view from the west side of the Memorial, with fall colours here and there.
I finish today with two shots from Centretown. These were taken on Monday morning, and are the most recent fall colours I've taken this year. I still have more to come from other locations, and the colours are still in good shape here, but odds are any more shots I take of fall colours will turn up on the Ottawa Daily Photo Facebook page as opposed to here. This first shot features leaves from a tree that always has these colours this time of year.
This second one features a view at Dundonald Park, a few days after a shot I featured yesterday, with golden leaves.
