Red And Gold

Today I start out with this view of autumn leaves in the Glebe. The home serves as the Embassy of Tunisia.

A few blocks away, this tree was in full red.

These colours were outside a home elsewhere in the Glebe.

During this particular walk I headed along the Rideau Canal towards Dow's Lake and Commissioners Park, where under gloomy skies I photographed the sculpture The Man With Two Hats, which I've shown before, against autumn colours.

These golden leaves in the park caught my eye.

And I photographed one of the flowerbeds with fall colours. Tulips will be here next May.

This autumn view from Plaza Bridge looks over the Rideau Canal. The glass wall of the Convention Centre stands on the far shore.

This view is taken at the area called Richmond Landing, along the shore of the Ottawa River. The spires of Parliament can be seen in the background, while Library And Archives Canada stands above.

Close by, I paused to photograph this tree.

One day I was walking along a bike path in Gloucester. This tree caught my eye.

For today I finish with three views at Dundonald Park. This is on the north edge of the park, with the leaves changing colours. I'll have a similar perspective from this spot in tomorrow's post, taken a few days later.

This was early one morning, on the same street as the first of two shots from the park shown in my first post of this series- the tall tree down at the end featured more prominently in that case.

While this was taken from within the park, with the trees backlit by morning sunlight on another day, looking towards that street I was on in the above shot.


  1. Your trees are colorful ! that means winter is approaching ! Don't like this season. Here it' still green only a few trees start to colour, we are late this year !

  2. Nesta altura do ano as árvores adquirem cores espectaculares.

  5. With so many photos from the cottage, I haven't been out and about here lately, but it's nice to see that there is still some colour out there.

  14. All I can say is WOW! Those trees are stunning.

  15. It is a very odd autumn with some trees changing and others not at all yet!

  16. Especially the 3rd from the bottom, William. Am so enjoying seeing autumn in your neighborhood of the continent. Thanks for taking the time time explain the seasonal workings of my old friend the Rideau! Have a sweet day, Bro

  22. How lovely to see all those fall colors. Beautiful shots!

  23. My favorite view is your third to last photo. It's a real winner.

  24. The orange and the yellow colours should stay all year long...

  25. That shot with all the coloured trees behind the parked vehicles is great!!

  26. The first word that came to mind was beautiful.
    Autumn (and its amazing colours) is beautiful and glorious.

    All the best Jan

  27. We were in the city Friday, and still saw some leaves. OUrs, here, are gone.

  28. Great captures, William. Photo #7 is my favourite. It looks like there are red leaves and there are only shades of other colours around.

  29. @Carol: thank you!

    @Denise: thanks!

    @Kay: I liked it.

    @Catarina: if only.
