It is my habit to mark New Year's Eve with twilight shots taken over the last few months. Such is the case this year, starting with this evening shot in July taken downtown, with moody skies and the very last light of day.

Winter Lights Upon Parliament Hill
A holiday tradition for many years now has been a projected multimedia show onto Centre Block on Parliament Hill. This is continuing regardless of the work going on inside the building for the next few years. This one is a counterpart to the summer Northern Lights show, which I really need to photograph again next year. Strictly speaking, it's more of a winter theme than a Christmas concept, as the show is more about the land, animals, and life in Canada. It runs into the first week of January, and starts each night at five thirty, going for six hours, repeating every fifteen minutes.

The Capital In Christmas Lights
I went out one evening, before a significant snowfall, to photograph Christmas lights. I start with the grounds at Ottawa City Hall, where trees had lights strung up and a large wreath was hung near the main entrance. The skating rink at left was in use.
