I have previously done this in a post seen here, and am returning today to do the same. Once a month I stop at a platform where the Alexandra Bridge starts and photograph south to take in the view as it changes seasonally. The view takes in the Chateau Laurier, Rideau Canal, Bytown Museum, and Parliament Hill where the Ottawa River passes below. This first view is in mid October of 2019.
It was quite different in early November on a day with stormy skies.
In the middle of December, ice was forming up on the river below, and snow had fallen on the landscape.
I took this shot on New Year's Day.
I returned in the latter half of February.
This shot from March was a couple of days past the first day of spring, but still looking like winter with snow falling. The ice on the river below, however, was starting to break up.
However, spring seemed to have started asserting itself by early April. The ice on the river was gone, and the waters were high.
Early May saw leafs starting to emerge on the trees.
Mid-June saw things looking fully leafed out and the river relatively calm.
By the middle of July, boat traffic on the river was becoming more common.
And finally, here it was on a hot, humid August day. I will be continuing with this concept for a post sometime next year.
