Lights In Confederation Park

 Picking up where I left off yesterday, this is the glass tower at the National Arts Centre. When it's lit up, its panels show various videos and still images, revolving around its cultural purpose.


I continued on past the NAC, taking in these lights to the south of the building.


And then I came into Confederation Park. While other nearby areas tend to use traditional coloured lights, this park uses spotlights to shine colours onto trees that are now dormant for the winter. Snow globes with bright white lights hang in some of the trees.


The park is home to several military monuments, the biggest of which is the National Aboriginal Veterans Monument.


The Lord Elgin Hotel stands in the background looking here.


One more shot in the park, and then I headed across the road to City Hall.

  9. Beautiful photos
    If bloggers could meet in one place for a night time dinner, then I'd chose Ottawa, outdoors at a long table with the lights all around us.

  11. All those lights are lovely, thanks for showing them. I have a few red lights on the bush outside my front door, but other than that I haven't been out anywhere to see the Christmas lights. It just doesn't seem the same this year.
