The first day of each month is a theme day for members of City Daily Photo, and for the beginning of the year, that theme is the best of the year. See what others have chosen for the theme by clicking right here.
I'll be seeing to Ottawa today, and over in Gatineau tomorrow for my best of the year in the national capital region. I start with this winter shot of the Rideau Canal downtown in its final stretch, taken in the last light of day. The National Gallery and Parliament Hill lie on the west side, while the Chateau Laurier dominates the east side.
