Some days ago I posted about a visit to the Museum of Nature to photograph fall colours. Following that visit I headed downtown, primarily to photograph in Confederation Park. Along the way I noticed colours in Minto Park.
This street view has Minto Park to its right.
A short walk up, these colours at St. John The Evangelist Anglican Church caught my eye.
And a short walk beyond that, I took these two shots in the courtyard at Knox Presbyterian Church.
Just beyond Knox and across the street on Elgin are the grounds of Ottawa City Hall. Fall colours were found in abundance alongside the Heritage Building.
This is a new addition to the grounds that I had not noticed before. This is an Algonquin wayfinding wheel. The north directional arrow is based on a copper spearhead typical of the people. The moose lies at the centre. Four directions contained on the inner circle symbolize the stages of life, with canoes along the sides. And on the outer rim are animals significant to the Algonquin peoples.
The grounds of City Hall are shared with the main provincial courthouse in the city. This tree caught my attention.
I'll show you Confederation Park in a couple of days, but later in the afternoon I passed by Dominion-Chalmers United Church, and the ivy on the wall drew my attention.
This of course is in Dundonald Park. This particular tree really caught my attention this year, as I photographed it several times.
The following morning, things were bright in the park. Most of the leaves had fallen, but not all of them. This shot is taken from the east end.
This is probably my last fall photo for the year, though not the last in this series. I took this a few days ago one bright morning in Dundonald Park. It appears in the above shot as well in the distance, one of the last trees in the park to still have its leaves.
