Montreal Looking East

Montreal Looking East, originally uploaded by susanvg.
A magnificent day for this time in October - much to give thanks for. I took advantage of the day and spent part of this Canadian holiday walking on Mount Royal. I was not alone; people of all ages were out strolling, running, pushing baby carriages, cycling and just enjoying the clear fall air, the warmth of the sun and the colours. The city's trees are slowly putting on their autumn splendour. While some trees have already dropped their leaves, others linger in their summer greens.

I love to see the dogs out walking from tiny miniatures to great big pooches - all enjoying the atmosphere. The mountain is a happy place. I looked down towards Beaver Lake...

... admiring the reflection. The walk energized me with autumn's clear air and cool temperature. It was wonderful to breathe in the magic of the season.


  1. The colors of the foliage around the lake make me gasp - how lovely! Can you walk to this park from your house, Susan? I remember you've brought us here before - it's a beautiful natural place.

  2. Nothing like a walk on a beautiful day, especially when you bring your camera along. Beautiful fall pics. The park looks different than it did in the spring.

  3. All of these are lovely! The natural framing of the 'Montreal Looking East' is outstanding. It makes the city view look even better.

  4. Your photos depict 'the magic of the season' really beautifully. I know what you mean with the energizing effect of autumn air! We've have been lucky to enjoy a nice colourful season, too, this year.
