Landmarks In The Night

 Here we have a frontal view of the War Memorial.

Turning to the east looks over at the National Arts Centre.

I started walking around, looking at the lights mixing with the Memorial.

Then I crossed the street, taking in a view of the Chateau Laurier at Plaza Bridge over the Canal. Christmas lights can be seen beyond in Major's Hill Park.

Turning around gives a view of the War Memorial.

And returning to the grounds of the Memorial, I took this shot.

Then I came back to the south side of the grounds to take this shot of the NAC, with the glass tower lit up with varying displays.


  1. Hello,
    Beautiful light displays, I love the blue colored lights.
    Take care, have a happy new week!

  2. They are an invitation to celebrate...

  3. Some time ago I was reading a report on the future of power generation and usage. Excess consumption is an incredible waste of energy, lights left on, televisions blaring away when no one is in the room etc. At this time of the year it must spike like crazy!

  4. I am playing a song in my head.
    Strangers in the night
    Exchanging glances

  14. I just love seeing Christmas lights up, I'm tempted to leave mine up still outside.

  15. It's like an older sibling swinging the younger around in circles.
