It was time for a change in the seasonal header image, and so I switched it last evening, selecting a winter shot of Parliament Hill, taken from Major's Hill Park on New Year's Day this year.
Carrying on where I left off, I took another shot of the grand stained glass in the Memorial Chamber. This place feels very much like a sanctuary. It brings out a mix of feelings- beauty, power, and deep sorrow.
Here are more inscriptions on the walls- campaigns and battles for Canadians in the Second World War.
Another case contains a book of remembrance for the Korean War.
An inscription on the nearby wall features both that war and international operations Canadians have been involved in.
The heart of the room is this book of remembrance for the dead of the First World War on top of this elaborately carved centrepiece.
Today I finish with a look up at the exit of the Memorial Chamber. The glass above does not have an exterior view, and so is lit from the other side.
