Rideau Canal at Night

One last time a picture from Ottawa, Canada. I simply adore the view over the Rideau Canal with the Parliament Buildings and Chateau Laurier in the background. But I especially like it at night. The pathways along the canal are lit and the surrounding buildings are beautifully illuminated.

One thing you should consider when trying to take this shot – you definitely need a tripod. And even then you have to pay attention to the buses and trucks passing over the Mackenzie King Bridge. Not because they could run your over (there is plenty of sidewalk space), but because they tend to get the bridge moving so to speak. And for a long exposure picture this can be a disaster. So wait for them to pass or stop and also take plenty of pictures to avoid any disappointment later on.

  1. Gorgeous picture (again). I like Ottawa too. Canadians are very friendly and open and Parliament hill is very beautiful, unlike any other city.
