These first two are from the same May evening. I was crossing the Mackenzie King Bridge over the Rideau Canal. The sun was setting almost over the Canal itself, a testament to how much it appears to shift in our sky from one part of the year to the other.
A few minutes later I was on the rooftop of the Rideau Centre mall photographing tulips. I went to photograph the twilight sky over the Byward Market. The spires of Notre Dame Basilica are at the heart of this shot.
In early June, here was the view.
One evening in mid-June, I was crossing the Bank Street Bridge into the Glebe. The sun was setting, relatively differently in the sky from where it is in the cold of winter, when it seems to be setting to the left of the Canal here. The sky caught my eye, particularly the presence of a sundog, which we see more often here in winter. I photographed it twice, the second time with a zoom on the sundog itself.
And in late June, here we have views from the Mackenzie King Bridge looking towards the setting sun.
In the first half of July, here was the sky from this spot.
A couple of days later I got a twilight view from the Bank Street Bridge again.
In the latter part of July, I was away for a few days to see my father in Guelph. Here we have sunset views, taken about twenty minutes apart, outside the retirement home where he lives.
And I finish off with this August view taken looking towards Gatineau from an overlook at the start of the Alexandra Bridge over the Ottawa River.
