It's still winter, the very best of seasons, and I have some shots of the season today. This cold view in February was taken one night as I was heading home in a snowstorm. The downtown street was quiet as the heavy snowfall continued.
Here we have the Rideau Canal at the Bank Street Bridge with some skaters on their way either way. The Canal skateway officially closed for the season on March 10th, making for a good season for the skaters.
What to do with all that snow that falls? The city has snow dumps here and there where the snow gets piled up over the winter and left to melt (which can take a long while in the spring. This is one of them near my home- the piles are well over one's head by now.
This car is in Centretown. The owner obviously doesn't use their car over the winter, so it's packed over with snow. This can't be good for a car.
I happened to be up early one day at the beginning of the month and passed by Lansdowne Park around dawn. This view of the south section of the stadium is backlit by the first light of the day. This is probably the last dawn shot you'll see from me for months on end, as I see far more sunsets than sunrises. The field is home to a football team and a soccer team. While the CFL season doesn't start until June, apparently the soccer team has its home opener on the 6th of April. They're going to have to dig out the seats on both sides before that happens.
On another day I was passing by the National War Memorial downtown and decided to photograph it, with the familiar landmarks of Parliament Hill and the Chateau Laurier providing a backdrop. Work crews are busy after each snowfall clearing away enough snow, including on the wheelchair ramps, so that visitors can get up to the Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier without a problem.
One evening earlier in the month I was passing by St. Patrick Basilica downtown. A statue of the Holy Mother is outside, lit up at night. She's been repaired- last year a windstorm brought down a big tree that knocked her off the pedestal and broke one of her arms.
And for today I finish with this snowy view in the Glebe, taken one day earlier in the month.
