Once a month I come out to the start of the Alexandra Bridge, where a viewing platform is set up, to photograph the view through the seasons. The perspective takes in the Chateau Laurier at left and Parliament Hill at right, with the entrance of the Rideau Canal nestled between them.
To start, this was the view on an overcast mid-June day, one on a bit of a cool side.
Early in July saw different conditions, with some sun, but hot and humid.
A month later in early August, here's how things looked.
By mid September, the view was like this on a brooding day.
Here we had it on an early October day. Fall colours were just starting to make their presence known.
Early in November I paid another visit. Leaves were either in fall colours or had already fallen.
In mid-December there had been some snow, and ice was starting to form on the river.
Early January saw different weather, and the river below the lookout covered in ice.
A cold, clear day in mid-February. You wouldn't know it to look at this shot, which feels peaceful, but there was a lot of noise coming from the area of the Hill, thanks to the so called trucker convoy- who called themselves peaceful protesters, but in fact were anything but peaceful. I will despise those people until the end of time.
And I'm finishing up with this view on another clear day in the first half of this month. We'll see this series again down the line, but tomorrow I have a similar set of photos from a spot upstream from here.
