A reminder to members of City Daily Photo: the theme day for December is Comfort Food.

Early one morning I was out at Lansdowne Park to catch the sun rising just above the horizon.

There is a mix of trees here, near the south portion of the stadium, where a wooden screen curves around the structure.

I then headed over to the nearby Bank Street Bridge, where I photographed the fall colours over the Rideau Canal, first looking to the east, then to the west.

A couple of days later downtown, I took these shots at City Hall.

Nearby, I noticed this side entrance for Knox Presbyterian Church, framed by ivy in a fall state.

Dundonald Park again, with the trees showing more change.

For today I finish with this shot taken a day or so later. I was down at Lebreton Flats and photographed the Canadian Firefighters Memorial with fall colours. I was on my way to the nearby Portage Bridge, and decided to make a good walk of it. Tomorrow we'll pick up from here.


  1. Oh, lovely scenes! Have a good week!

  2. Love the reflection of the clouds on the calm water. Peaceful.

  3. Nice fall colours again, but I mostly like the reflections in the Rideau Canal today.

  4. You have nice autumn colours there, the reflection is wonderful.

  5. Glorious autumn colours William, love the reflections in the waters of the canal also 💛

  6. Beautiful autumn colours and the reflections in the canal are fantastic.

  7. Beautiful Autumn scenes and trees!
    Take care, enjoy your day!

  8. The trees around where we live are mostly bare now, all the leaves on the ground

  9. Fall is such a pretty time of year in so many places.

  10. ...I remember Knox Presbyterian Church.

  11. Love those shots with the canal!

  17. What a wonderful time of year it is with those spectacular colours.

  18. A beautiful sunrise photo, love those clouds, and also the ones in the reflection of the river. The Fall colors along the Rideau Canal must be spectacular, as are those in your series of changing leaves. The ivory framing the church door is one of my favorites, though they are all quite lovely. A touching memorial to the firefighters. That must have been a great walk. Thanks for sharing the sights you saw.

  19. Favorite is the clouds reflected in the canal.

  20. The epitome of a perfect October walk. I especially love the red Ivy climbing up the weathered brick .. .

  21. I love the colors of this time of year. The shots with the water reflections are just perfect.
