Merry Christmas, everyone!

It’s a very unusual Christmas here—we have no snow and as I’m writing this, on the 24th, it’s 17°C outside. No kidding.

On the 23rd, temperatures were mild as well and it was very foggy. I went for a long walk just because I could (it’s rarely warm enough to spend time outside in December!) and because I found the foggy weather very intriguing.

Here are the shots I gathered that day, from the eerie Experimental Farm to Parliament Hill in the fog, from the busy Rideau Centre to the Byward Market.
