Early this month, I had to go out to Westboro. I took this shot of fall colours in a parking lot in the neighbourhood. I took the same shot in a post early in this series.
A bus ride later, I was up in the Tunney's Pasture area, a government complex lying north of the Hintonburg and Mechanicsville neighbourhoods. This red tree caught my eye.
The following day I was on my way to the War Museum for a visit. This view is in Lebreton Flats on the way.
A short walk away I took this shot. The cliff we see here is part of the same ridge that Parliament Hill is on.
The Ottawa River runs through a number of channels in this area, and this particular one is a controlled one, with waters at a low level at present.
Beyond this channel, these colours really popped out.
This view is a short way beyond, on my way to the Canadian Firefighters Memorial.
The Memorial is a national memorial, with a wall of names of firefighters who have fallen in the line of duty or died of workplace related illnesses inscribed, from across the country. Each year new names are added to the wall, and a national service is held in September. A large statue of a firefighter stands across from the wall. Trees planted around the Memorial were at their height.
Neighbouring the Memorial is Pindigen Park, developed by the National Capital Commission in collaboration with local First Nations tribes. I've passed by this spot many times, but have not photographed it before. I will have to remedy that, likely in the spring, as there are some neat touches to be found here.
And then it was to the waiting intersection. Beyond were the grounds of the Canadian War Museum, with bright red colours. I'll start showing you that series in a few days.
