For today and tomorrow, my shots date to after the first day of spring. We had snow falling on this particular day, and I was out for a walk. I was in Major's Hill Park and photographed this view looking towards Parliament Hill. The fence in the foreground is a snowfence to protect the tulip beds.
I went as far as the viewing platform where the Alexandra Bridge commences. At right is the outcrop of Nepean Point.
A statue of Samuel de Champlain stands up there. For the time being, this is as close as I'll get to the statue- the parkland surrounding it is being reconfigured with a new design.
Here's the bridge from the platform. It crosses over the Ottawa River to Gatineau, and on that day, the far shore was disappearing in the falling snow.
Here's what the river looked like to the west. There was open water out there, and faultlines in the ice closer to the bridge.
This view looks towards the Canadian Museum of History.
I started back the way I came, pausing to photograph Parliament Hill framed by this art sculpture, Dialogue.
