I have some odds and ends today from the last few months. I start with a building project out on Lebreton Flats, where the new main branch of the Ottawa Public Library is being built. From time to time as I pass by, I document how things are going.
This is a joint project with Library and Archives Canada, which will also have space in the building. This first shot was taken in mid-October.
It's been too long since I was in those mountains.
Back in Ottawa. I took this shot in early December from the terrace at the National Arts Centre, looking across to the Government Conference Centre and the Chateau Laurier on the opposite side of the Rideau Canal.
On another December day, I took this shot of the Supreme Court of Canada in the snow.
This shot was taken at the tail end of our first good snowstorm of the season, some nights later.
The following morning, someone had made a snowman.
Beautiful snowy images. It must be very cold over there. Our weather here is getting warmer.ReplyDelete
We get cold winters.Delete
Fine photos William!ReplyDelete
Love the snowman.ReplyDelete
I have seen Lake Louise on TV many times when following the ski World Cup.ReplyDelete
It's quite a place.Delete
Schön die Bilder vom Winter mit Schnee und Eis aber ich warte schon auf den Frühling.ReplyDelete
Thank you for your photo series. I like the ones of the mountains the most. I have never seen a mountain in my life, only high hills. It seems great to see mountains at least once in my life. I also find the snow photos beautiful. But of course it had a dark side: snowed in, too cold.ReplyDelete
Greetings out of a very rainy Holland
You must go to the Alos.Delete
Thank goodness the tar sands are not below Lake Louise or we'd be desecrating it.ReplyDelete
I would love to visit Lake Louise area! The snowman is cute. Take care, have a happy day!
One of the most picturesque spots in the country.Delete
Great variety in this post. Love every shot!ReplyDelete
I find this potpourri of images beautiful and fascinating. Never having been to the mountains -- wow. Majestic. And I would love that Scottish festival as well. That image of the National Arts Centre is a gem.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed the evening but left before midnight.Delete
I miss the downtown action, but not the people! I guess I am a hermit these days.ReplyDelete
I really liked the building construction. It fascinates me. Lake Louise is amazing.

Love that clear night shot, William.ReplyDelete
The Canadian landscape is beautiful!!ReplyDelete
I especially like the mountain scenes.
Have a blessed day!
As do I.Delete
Lake Louise is wonderful, but your photo of that snow street at night (nr 8) is my favoriteReplyDelete
We got quite a pile.Delete
Lovely collection, I think my favorite is the snowy shot of Supreme Court building.ReplyDelete
Snow makes everything look so pretty.ReplyDelete
Canada is very beautiful ~ love the little snow man and always enjoy bag pipe players ~ReplyDelete

Good eye on that one.Delete
I enjoyed the mix of photographs.ReplyDelete
The snowman made me smile :)

I think the first Supreme Court building photo was my favourite this time round.ReplyDelete
It looked good in falling snow.Delete
Loved the snowy mountain photos. A fabulous selection of odds and ends.ReplyDelete
