Seasonal Colours

I left off yesterday in Dundonald Park, which is where I begin again today.

I passed by St. Patrick Basilica on another day from my previous post.

A few blocks away I caught these trees in fall colours.

And a block up the street is this sculpture set I've shown before, though it has been a few years. A First Nations hunter prepares to draw an arrow. His quarry, a deer in the background, stands as if it has already heard him and is about to flee. The gardening between the two was redone in the last year, as the vegetation had grown high enough that the two were out of sight of each other.

More fall colours, outside a home in Centretown. I've shown you this tree at a distance- the first shot from my Saturday post. We'll see it again from another angle.

Here's a wider view.

And this was nearby.


  1. Oh, after the yellow, the sad nakedness of the trees follows...
    Clever sculptures, I nearly missed the deer!
    Arty leaves there.

  2. We are not yet so far, the trees still have leaves, but probably not for long anymore.

  3. Your autumn, or should I say "fall", is looking good. How can the hunter be expected to kill the deer now he has no cover?

  4. Hello, the fall colors and trees are gorgeous. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week!

  5. would be nice if the colors lasted longer. The leaves are falling like rain here!

  6. Our leaves are pretty much off the trees now.

  7. that tree looks like it had a belly button. lol!!!! great fall colors. awesome!! ( ;

  8. Isn't it glorious?! I have a few photos left of fall, but the leaves are done here!

  9. Great sculpture...the hunter and his prey! I love the closeup of that leaf.

  10. Some people have a lot of leaf raking to do in Ottawa.

  11. That very first photo is so appealing to me. I wish I could walk down that street and listen to the leaves crunching under my feet.

  12. Some people find the fallen leaves a nuisance, but I think they look gorgeous, fabulous shots William 🍁

  13. The placement of the two sculptures are very well done!

  14. These beautiful Fall colors take my breath away.

  15. Beautiful. Wish the leaves didn't all off the trees so quickly.

  16. Great pictures . I too say the leaves fall off so fast as Happy one mentioned.

  17. Beautiful, I love the warm colours of Fall.

  23. The golden shine of a beautiful fall day.

  24. I love it when the leaves are two-tone like the red and yellow ones here. So pretty!

  25. A wonderful invogorating walk through nature's bountiful colours.

  26. Gosh, you've captured those fall colors beautifully William!

  27. I love your first shot of the street paved with gold. And your close up of those leaves, those beautiful leaves.

  28. Marvelous photos of the autumn foliage ~ Macro shot of the leaves is so creative!

    Happy Day to You,
