Once again, we have reached the time of year when our winged friends leave us for the next several months. Autumn is always a bitter sweet time of year because it brings two things. It brings us true beauty in the colours of the changing leaves, and gorgeous soft light; and it brings us that much closer to old man winter.
I had always loved winter growing up, but since living in Toronto I have lost the taste for the cold, the damp, and the slush that winter tends to be in that city. But this year I am looking forward to winter once again, because Ottawa is such a lovely winter city with it’s skating on the Canal; the winter carnival, called Winterlude; and the close proximity to cross country and downhill skiing.
Now, I just have to figure out how to take photos in the blinding snow.
