Stumbling Upon A Sunset

The other day, I stumbled upon one of the most amazing sunset ever.

I was downtown, shopping around, when suddenly I realized the sun was about to set (at 4:30 pm, stupid Winter time!). I rushed to Parliament Hill to catch a glimpse of it and I spend over an hour there, watching the amazing colors as the sun set on the city. It was just magic.

The bridges you see are the bridges between Ottawa and Québec over the Ottawa River. The city skylight is Gatineau, right across Parliament Hill.

  1. Wow, love that first shot especially. That horizontal strip of light works really well with the vertical statue. Even though it gets so cold, you do live in an amazing part of the world!

  2. @Seb – I must say skies are often amazing in Canada. Not sure why… but I enjoy it.

    @RennyBA’s Terella – Thank you! Right place, right time I guess.

    @Nigel Babu – I stood in the cold for an hour an a half and froze my butt off while clicking like crazy 😆

    @CM-Chap – Thank you!

    @Khengsiong – It does, actually, especially in the Fall and in the Winter. Not sure why, must have something to do with the cold because sunsets in the summer aren’t as nice.

    That said, it’s hard to find a good spot to capture the sunset because Ottawa is pretty flat, and the view is often blocked by residential areas.

  3. i love sunsets too.
    they really come early this cold time of year.
    the stars are out even before the last light glimmers.
    i hope some winter day to see that orange sunset
    before walking home and thinking of you pulling
    your coat tight against the dark.
