Great Light and Gorgeous Fall Rhapsody in Ottawa

I finally got the chance to take—almost—perfect fall pictures!

The weather was better this week and the light was great. We first drove to Hampton Park in Westboro, close to Island Park Drive and its huge mansions. There was a nice mix of trees and leaves of different colours, green, yellow, orange… I even spotted two teddy bears buried under piles of fallen leaves. I felt like a CSI agent when I took pictures of the “bodies”!

Then we went to Vincent Massey Park by the Ottawa River. This park is often used for various summer fests such as the Greek Fest and boasts an amazing number of picnic tables. The trees were still green but the ground was covered in a thick blanket of orange leaves. I loved the contrast.
