As I end the year with sunsets, so too do I begin my first formal post of the year with sunrises, taken over the course of several months.
My first two shots were taken in June, early one morning at Lansdowne Park. This was from the east side of the stadium.
A few minutes later I got this shot from the west side of the stadium.
And on a morning early in July I was back at Lansdowne. This first view took in the dawn from the west end of the stadium.
Some days later, a different sky.
In August, I caught this dawn sky at Lansdowne, near the east end of the park.
These two shots are at Central Park in the Glebe, taken a few days apart. This is in mid-August.
And this is in late August.
Late in September, I caught the early light of dawn at Lansdowne again, this time with the Aberdeen Pavilion in the background.
And in mid October, once again the stadium view caught my eye one morning.
This early November view was taken in Dundonald Park at dawn.
A different kind of dawn shot, with the sun behind me taken early one December morning in Chinatown. The arch is in shadow, but the sun is starting to shine on the buildings in the background and the construction crane for a site a few blocks west.
I finish with two shots taken around mid-month on a mild morning downtown. The ice on the Rideau Canal was weak, with a thin glaze of water on top, and I caught this view just at the right time looking southeast. Confederation Park lies to the right, with National Defense at left.
Crossing the street, I took this shot of the last stretch of the Canal. The National Arts Centre and Parliament Hill are on the left side, and the Government Conference Centre and Chateau Laurier on the right. Things have gotten colder since I took these two shots.
