Once a month I come to an overlook at the start of the Alexandra Bridge where it crosses the Ottawa River to Gatineau. I come to document the changing seasons in a view towards the Chateau Laurier, Rideau Canal, and Parliament Hill. To begin, here is the view at twilight one day in the middle of last September when I was returning from a visit to the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau.
And then here is the view about a month later, with fall colours during the day.
In the first part of November, most of the leaves were gone.
A month later, on a cold December day, I took this shot.
By early January, the river was freezing up below the Hill.
In early February, I was back on a snowy day.
Here it was in early March on a brighter day.
Early April saw significant change.
And finally, a view from early this month with spring taking hold.
Nice to see!ReplyDelete

Beautiful views across the river. Enjoyed your seasonal shots very much. Those buildings in the distance are magnificent.ReplyDelete
It's brilliant showing the seasonal changes with the one beautiful view (beautiful in all seasons, but I can certainly see the changes).ReplyDelete
Really love these, how different each photo is. Light, clouds, snow foliage or no foliage all change the tone of each photo. Fantastic post.ReplyDelete
Lovely photos of the same scene. Nice to see the changes.ReplyDelete
@Denise: thank you.ReplyDelete
@Sallie: I think I prefer the winter views with snow coating the slopes of Parliament Hill.
@Revrunner: they come and go.
@Gemel: thank you.

Truly amazing to see the obvious changes each month from the same spot. Love this post.ReplyDelete
Very interesting to see the seasonal changes from the same vantage point and spring certainly did take its time in arriving in Canada.ReplyDelete
Spring usually does take awhile.Delete
I like how it looks with the snow, that's something we don't get hereReplyDelete
Snow is definitely part of our winter.Delete
I always enjoy these series -- the winter is the most dramatic of changes.ReplyDelete
