This view of Parliament Hill was taken from the staircase leading down to the terrace beside the Chateau Laurier. Fall colours were in full on the slope leading down to the side of the Rideau Canal. The building in the foreground is the lockmaster station.

Fall At Its Peak
Further along, on the terrace, I took this shot that included the Bytown Museum.
And then I went into Major's Hill Park for another view.
Further in the park I looked back towards the Chateau.
And then I went back to the fence to get this shot of the Hill and the Ottawa River.
Fall colours in close up make for a good shot.
I looked towards Notre Dame. The flowerbeds were in the process of having tulip bulbs placed when I was here. A close eye might make out the National Peacekeeping Monument, framed in red. I headed that way.
And here it is. The bushes that ring around the monument were all turned to red.
Here's a close up of them.
I carried on, photographing this tree outside Notre Dame.
And this tree beside a wall at the back of the church property.
Back in Centretown, I photographed this wall of ivy in fall colours.
For today I finish off with this view of the slope beneath Parliament Hill. I returned here a few days later for a walk along the river, a reverse of the visit I showed some days ago. This was the first shot of that trip. Tomorrow I'll show you the rest of that walk to finish off my fall colours series.
