Wanderings In The Fall

While some of you have colours turning now, our peak of the colours tends to be in October, often around our Thanksgiving, or in the days afterwards. Such was the case when I made this visit to the park in the middle of last month.

Here we have a view of the National Gallery's glass tower.

I stepped out of Major's Hill Park to go to the start of the Alexandra Bridge. These views were along the roadway, with views of Nepean Point, as well as back across to Parliament Hill.

The views include Dialogue, by Florent Cousineau, which I've shown before framing the Hill.

Another look at Nepean Point and the Alexandra Bridge. The statue up there is Samuel de Champlain.

I've come out this way on a regular basis for shots like this one. There's a viewing platform where the Alexandra starts, and I got here just as some clouds moved in the path of the sun. I took a couple of shots, one for a post of comparison shots over time, and this extra one.

I went to the other side of the platform and looked out over the river.


  1. Beautiful series of images William, love your shot of Parliament Hill framed by the Dialogue sculpture 💛

  2. Beauty all over the place. Lovely photos!

  3. The glass tower is beautiful! As the street views, too.

  4. I specially like the way you are showing Parliament Hill in the third and fourth photo.

  8. I like the Dialogue sculpture...then I read Sandi's comment...

  9. Hello, Your header photo is beautiful. I love the fall colors and gorgeous views. Enjoy your day, have a great weekend!

  15. Some excellent geography in this post.

  16. You have inspiring scenery to wander through.

  17. It's so long ago since we've had leaves it feels like last year. You've found some great color.

  18. I like the first photo with the glass tower a lot. Wonderful composition.

  19. That glass tower looks so cool between the trees! Great set of images William!

  20. I love seeing your photos of the leaves turning. We won't see leaves turning until late December or January and then, only a few of our trees actually turn. I'll have to be observant to find them.

  21. I have really been enjoying your fall photos.

  22. @Beth: thank you!

    @Sandi: I can see that.

    @Kay: odd, huh?
