Ottawa Autumn at Patterson Creek

The leaves are turning and we have frost in the air. Thursday was a wonderful above seasonal fall day, so I took a walk over to Patterson Creek in downtown Ottawa. It will be drained starting Tuesday for the winter.

In the center of the park is, The O’Connor Street Bridge, a single concrete arch bridge spanning Patterson Creek in the Glebe community, was designed by Canadian architect Francis Conroy Sullivan in 1907. Sullivan was the only Canadian pupil of well known architect Frank Lloyd Wright.  The O’Connor Street Bridge has been designated as an Ontario Heritage Property.

But it is Autumn, so fall colours are of interest. All are taken with my Pentax ✩istD SMC-M✩ 300mm f:4 prime lens. I tend to use backlight in my fall leaf shooting.

This fall we haven’t had the explosion of colour as we had in past autumns, but some colours are intense

About Darrell Larose

I am a highly motivated self confessed techno-geek. While rooted in traditional analog photography, I have embraced the new technologies in photography. I am just as comfortable under the dark cloth of a large-format view camera, as I am with a digital camera. I can produce award winning photographs within the darkroom, or from a digital-desktop. With 40 years of photography as a both hobby, and over 30 in the professional arena I have always produced. I am self-taught in the digital media, I have been a PhotoShop user since 1995 (version 2.5) I found the transition fairly seamless due to my long experience in labs. I have worked within various Government photo units, including the Forensic Photo Section of the RCMP, as well as various professional labs. I can easily converse with a police forensic photographer as I can with a wedding sports or commercial photographer. I have worked for several of Ottawa’s top photographers. I have worked at several pro labs. As well as many years in photo retail.
