New Year's Eve is here. It has been my habit to end the year with sunsets, and so we do so again.
I'm starting with two views from outside the jurisdiction, taken in July. I was in Guelph, in southern Ontario, to visit family. These twilight views were taken outside my father's retirement home.
This August view was from the Bank Street Bridge where it crosses the Rideau Canal, at dusk.
The last light of day was still in the sky one evening in August as I was passing over the Rideau Canal downtown, taking in this view of the National Arts Centre, Parliament Hill, the government Conference Centre, and Chateau Laurier.
Another August evening, I was passing by Parliament Hill when the combination of the last light and the cloud deck caught my eye.
A few minutes later I was in the Byward Market. The main market building is silhouetted against the sky.
In mid-September I took this view from the Bank Street Bridge one evening.
These two views taken on different days from the same spot are from October, at a place downtown late in the day.
Also in October, this was taken from the transit area outside the Billings Bridge mall, looking west.
In November, I took this shot of the last light of day on a street in the Glebe.
My last two shots are from an evening earlier this month. West Block on Parliament Hill is silhouetted against the last light of day.
And I finish with a view of the Ottawa River, taken from the grounds west of the West Block. Happy New Year to you, and I'll see you in 2020.
