Catching an Amazing Sunset on Mackenzie King Bridge

It’s hard to catch a good sunset in Ottawa. Parliament Hill is one of my favourite spots but I only stay for sunset a few times a year because I don’t really have a reason to be there late in the day.

Last Saturday, sunset came to me. After a drink in the Byward, I was crossing Mackenzie King Bridge to go for sushi in Chinatown when I noticed the tall buildings in the downtown core were set against light pink hues. I started shooting (the friend I was with was patient!) and a few minutes later, when I turned around, the Parliament’s dark silhouette stood out against the orange and yellow background.

Photography is all about timing!
