The Changing Of Seasons

We start today with a shot taken along the east side of Dundonald Park one afternoon at the end of September.

These three shots were taken a couple of days later, a damp morning in Centretown.

On another day I was at the Portage Bridge again, and took a shot of one of the channels of the Ottawa River looking downstream towards the Supreme Court and Parliament Hill.

This view takes in fall colours around the National War Memorial.

While close by, this view looks at the Ottawa Locks, where the Rideau Canal descends to meet the Ottawa River. The Gatineau Hills, far off in the distance, were showing soft reds.

A short walk away from there, this fall display was looking good in the Byward Market area.

One early October evening in the Glebe, I walked down a street to take this shot in the last light of day.

And on another evening, a short walk away from the above location, I took these two shots at Lansdowne Park. The Rideau Canal can be glimpsed in the background in this one. 

Turning to the right, the view for these fall colours includes the south stands and the wooden veil screening of the stadium.


  1. Yes nature is at its best this season!

  2. I think the Byward Market should be declared a national treasure.

  3. Beautiful and colorful tress, I like the mums and pumpkins.
    Take care, have a happy day!

  4. in the Adirondacks it is changing quickly.

  5. Curious about the veil. Is it there to keep people from peeping on the events?

  6. Changing of seasons is clearly the time of changing colours.

  7. You're getting some lovely color. It's very beautiful. Love the red maple leaves!

  8. Nice red colors, the leaf close up is gorgeous.

  9. @Marianne: I agree.

    @David: it has its ups and downs.

    @Eileen: thank you.

    @Tom: here now too.

    @Italiafinlandia: indeed.

  10. @Anvilcloud: the screen is decorative only. The whole east side of the stadium is one ridge with just a fence keeping onlookers out of an event.

    @Jan: very much so.

    @Jeanie: so do I.

    @Maywyn: I think so.

    @Magiceye: thanks.

  11. You captured some great displays of colour.

  12. It's kind of fun seeing the soft colors, focusing on natural elements rather than the human creations nearby.

  13. Your area is full of color. I like seeing how nature changes through the seasons.

  14. The colors are stunning and I love the Autumn decorations.

  15. I haven't been paying attention that the autumnal changes deserve. Very unusual.

  16. The trees are looking very colourful.

  17. @RedPat: definitely.

    @Barbara: it is.

    @Michelle: me too.

    @Sharon: I do too.

    @Francisco: thanks.

    @Catarina: I expect this is my last week of photographing fall colours, but who knows?

    @Bill: yes they are.

  18. Such pretty red trees and lovely skies! :-)

  19. Beautiful colors! Found some red leaves finally, too. Yours look waaaay better :-)

  20. Good contrasts for the season. Tweeted.

  21. El otoño está presente en tus imágenes, dando buena muestra, de la belleza de esta estación

  22. The lyrics that immediately came to mind: "turn, turn, turn." :-)

  23. @DJan: those were good days.

    @Iris: it has seemed an off year.

    @Mari: thank you.

    @Ventana: thanks.

    @Revrunner: I shall have to avoid that becoming an ear worm.

    @Gemel: thank you.

    @Cloudia: you're welcome.

  24. You show an interesting range of changes and then show their progress.

  25. Nice views and lovely autumn colours.

  26. What are the red flowers in the 5th photo? They almost look like nz bottle brush

  27. Divine photos of the beautiful colors of Autumn ~
