Autumn Walk

 Carrying on with my walk, I took this view along Sussex Drive a short distance away from where I left off yesterday.

This view overlooking the Ottawa River looks towards Gatineau, and the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge. Jacques Cartier Park is the wooded area on the far shore.

This path nearby would lead down closer to the water.

My walk took me back to the core, with this view of the Rideau Canal, and Confederation Park across the water.

A view from the Mackenzie King Bridge takes in the final stretch of the Rideau Canal.

I headed for Confederation Park.

And my last shot of that day, in the park itself.

Another day, and these two views in Dundonald Park.

A different day can make a big difference. This day passing by Dundonald Park had brooding skies in the west.

I went in October to pay a visit to the Canadian War Museum, in a series I'll start in a few days. I passed over a channel of the Ottawa River here, one that's been developed for white water rafting.

And nearby I took this photograph at the Canadian Firefighters Memorial.


  1. Wow, you captured some fantastic color! Great scenes.

  2. Here in Finland trees are totally bare now.
    Have a nice day!

  3. The photo of that curve in the canal is great with all those rafter.

  4. @Linda: thank you!

    @Italiafinlandia: they're done here too.

    @Stefan: it is!

    @Agnieszka: thanks!

    @Iris: that it was.

    @Jan: I think so too.

  5. Are they still refurbishing 24 Sussex Drive?

  6. Hello,

    What a beautiful walk, the views are lovely. Take care, enjoy your day! Have a great new week!

  7. had the place to yourself!

  8. Neat photos. The rafting section would be nice to watch. Why folks run rapids is beyond me. There'd have to be a humongous hideous monster chasing me to get me in a kayak on rapids.

  9. The views of the Ottawa River are wonderful, William.

  10. I like the photos showing how much leaves have changed in two days.

  11. You still have some colour on the trees. Lots to see on your walk.

  12. Another fine walk with lots to see and enjoy.

  13. It was nice to walk with you. in beautiful views.

  14. What a great place for walking. Nice walking along with you.

  15. @David: that I don't know at present.

    @Eileen: thank you!

    @Tom: so it seems.

    @Maywyn: it does look unforgiving.

    @RedPat: thank you!

  16. @Red: leaves change fast!

    @Fun60: now it's all done.

    @Marie: it is indeed.

    @Bill: definitely.

    @Orvokki: thanks!

    @Happyone: thank you!

  17. Such a beautiful walk, I enjoyed seeing your photographs.

    All the best Jan

  18. This walk has had me reminiscing, autumn has a scent all of it's own, and a feeling of magic as the trees turn.
    A beautiful walk.

  19. Follow the yellow blaze trail. :-)
