The first snow of the season falls on an early morning street scene in Ottawa.
On a free day in Ottawa, I decided to depart from my normal double-decker bus routine and explore the city via a Trolley Tour. Conveniently, the first stop was at an Irish Pub
Sub-zero temperatures weren’t enough to stop this couple taking a romantic stroll alongside the partially-frozen Rideau Canal.
Snow falls on the locks of the Rideau Canal, Ottawa. This is the colour version of this photo – converting to monochrome seemed redundant!
Technically, here in the southern hemisphere we are two weeks into spring, but it sure doesn’t feel like that today! In honour of today’s chilly weather, I present an appropriately wintery picture from my last trip to Canada. I arrived in time for the first snow-storm of the season – quite a shock for an Aussie who had never seen snow lying on the ground before. But despite the weather, there were still a few hardy souls braving the elements, including this lone figure trudging her way home through Major’s Hill Park.
