A Flourish

This shot taken in Centretown was taken late one afternoon.

Here we have another shot of fall colours at Dundonald Park, taken early one morning.

A couple of blocks away, another shot of colours in the morning light.

Later that day, I went for a walk and photographed St. Patrick Basilica again with fall colours.

I continued on, coming to Plaza Bridge to photograph the Rideau Canal again where it meets the Ottawa River.

I then headed along the terrace beside the Chateau Laurier to go over to Major's Hill Park.

The statue of Colonel John By here had fall colours as a backdrop.

This view includes Parliament Hill and the Gatineau shoreline.

Notre Dame's spires can be glimpsed here in the park.

And the top of the National Gallery's glass tower can be seen here.

I finish off with this view, looking towards the Hill, with the Bytown Museum nestled among the trees below.


  1. Too bad there was no sunshine during much of this series. I especially love all the gold that is shining in the sun in the first three photos.

  2. Wow, gorgeous fall colors and beautiful trees!
    Happy weekend!

  4. ...for here these are sights from the past!

  5. St. Patrick Basilica has a wonderful splash of color with that tree!
    Oh, I think you need some time for passing that canal...? An hour?

  6. Nice colors indeed. Thanks for brightening my day.

  7. Beautiful fall colours and great view.

  8. The golds and yellows were strong this year.

  9. I like your caption . It nicely describes fall colors.

  10. The late afternoon sun is making those trees glow!

  11. Your pictures nearly look like the view I have from our balcony, the same colors of the trees, except that here the leaves are almost gone !

  12. Beautiful autumn colours, I also love the light in the first three photos.

  13. Particularly splendid color when contrasted with that grey spire.

  14. Beautiful colours and they really stand out. Great photos!

  15. Loved the pictures!!
    The fall colours are practically gone here....

  16. For your memories during the snow filled months. Tweeted.

  17. Your photo scenery in Ottawa is always beautiful year round.

  18. Mother Nature is incredible. Looks like winter won't be far away by the look of the clouds.

  19. I adore that one, where the setting sun lights up the leaves!

  20. Wonderful trees, and the Basilica looks great. Stay safe!

  21. Lovely Autumnal colours, the trees look beautiful.

    All the best Jan
