Departing from the Firefighters Memorial, I noticed this bright red down slope among a lot of green.
This is a view of Richmond Landing. I would be going down that way, but had to stop on Portage Bridge for one of my twice a month shots of the Ottawa River.
As I crossed to Victoria Island, I noticed something lying in the grass on the island. At the present, the island is fenced off, with only authorized access, and so animals are left here in peace.
Zooming in, I took another shot. A fox was having a rest here in the grass at left.
This tree on the island was changing.
Coming back, I took these views at Richmond Landing.
The Landing lies below the heights to the west of Parliament Hill. Seen above the treeline here is the headquarters for Library And Archives Canada. It is the equivalent of the Library of Congress for my American readers.
I decided to walk along the river pathway, photographing back towards Victoria Island and the Landing. An old mill can be seen on the island. Gatineau is off in the distance.
This colourful bush caught my eye.
The path featured views of things to come: the Supreme Court, the Hill, and the National Gallery off in the distance.
Here the ivy on the rock wall below the Court caught my eye.
I photographed back to where I had come from, with the Portage Bridge crossing the main channel of the river.
