One day earlier in the month I walked around at Lansdowne Park. There's a ridgeline alongside the east end of the stadium that I was on in this first shot. I'm looking towards the Aberdeen Pavilion here, and fall colours beyond the lawn.

I moved towards the top, where the Rideau Canal can be glimpsed beyond the treeline in this shot. This bright red tree particularly stood out.

The eastern ridge has its summit here. A light sculpture has been placed on the hilltop, particularly vivid at night. I really should photograph it sometime.

I carried on along the path on the south side of the stadium.

My path took me to a spot that looks across at the cupola just visible above the trees. It's on the other side of the Canal, and used to be a convent. The building houses the administrative centre, the Royal College of Physicians And Surgeons, which oversees med students in the area.

I took a second version of it mostly for the long grasses below, planted at this spot.

From there I proceeded to the Bank Street Bridge for a couple of shots looking east. Fall colours were coming along nicely.


  1. A pleasant place for a stroll. Your autumn colours when you took the walk are about how ours are now.

  2. I like that sculpture, great place to put it, too.

  3. Beautiful colours and beautiful view of the canal.

  4. Autumn is starting to colour your world nicely.

  5. Our trees are just now beginning to turn.

  6. @John: that figures.

    @Francisco: thanks.

    @Iris: it is.

    @Nancy: thanks.

    @Italiafinlandia: pretty.

    @Jan: definitely.

    @Revrunner: good!

  7. Hello, Beautiful Autumn scenes. The sculpture and trees are lovely. Have a happy day and a great new week ahead.

  8. That sculpture must be beautiful at night.

  9. Wonderful autumn colors. I also would love to see that sculpture at night. :-)

  10. The blues in the last two photos are nice and rich.

  11. ...the canal looks lovely with touches of color.

  12. @Magiceye: thank you!

    @Eileen: thanks!

    @Marie: it is.

    @DJan: I'll definitely have to photograph it and put it into an odds and ends post sometime before year's end.

    @Anvilcloud: that they are.

    @Tom: and since I took these shots, the Canal water level is being lowered for the winter.

  13. great fall colors, we have a few ... they are a bit more muted this year. i am guessing it has to do with the shortage of rain and such? foggy this AM. wonder if we will have more rain? ( ;

  14. That last view is so lovely, William!

  15. Creative autumn shots at Landsdowne ^_^

    Happy Day To You,

  16. @Janey: thank you!

    @Beth: I hadn't gotten out to quite as much as I'd hoped to this year, but have photographed a good amount.

    @RedPat: I certainly think so too.

    @Sami: thank you!

    @Carol: thanks!

    @Red: thank you.

  17. Beautiful autumn colour in these shots William, such a pretty season 🍁

  18. You live in a lovely place William. Awesome photography!

  19. Nice area for a long walk. Great pictures of the changing colors.

  20. I love that light sculpture and you photographed it perfectly.
    Nice scenic autumn photos with the beautiful colours.

  21. That red coloured tree is beautiful William.

  22. Your world looks afire with color. It's lovely!

  23. Thank you for the autumn stroll, one of the things I really miss about living in the northern hemisphere is the changing of the seasons. It is different in Western Australia there is not as many deciduous trees and no stunning displays of colours as the leaves turn.

  24. Lots of nice fall colors. I especially like your third shot.

  25. @Grace: it is!

    @Alexandria: thanks!

    @Gattina: the fall colours there are good.

    @Catalyst: from time to time I walk there.

    @Bill: thank you!

    @Marleen: I agree.

    @Jeanie: I thought so!

    @Gemel: you're welcome.

    @Kay: I did as well.

  26. All pictures are beautiful. Favorite for me is number 3.

  27. I always dread this season only because of the one that comes next... but when it is here, it's magic in the making. I just came from a walk in the park still full of colour. No camera this time. On purpose. I just wanted to be part of it with no distractions. It was wonderful!

  28. Beautiful colors. Wonderful sculpture.

  29. Lovely pictures William :)

    All the best Jan
