Autumn Colour

 Today I begin a series on fall colours in the national capital area. I start with this particular tree outside a house in Centretown. This is inevitably the first tree I know of here that starts to turn.

These were on a tree in Little Italy.

I took this on the day I went to the Bytown Museum, with a tree alongside the Rideau Canal turning.

A fall display was on in the Byward Market.

Back in Little Italy, these caught my eye one day.

The same tree as in my second shot- just a bit further along.

On a couple of different days I passed through Lansdowne Park and took these.

And lastly, I took this at Lebreton Flats, on my way to catch a shuttle for an excursion. That we'll get into tomorrow.
