Views of Parliament Hill

Richard and I had dinner with friends in Ottawa and after supper we decided to go see the lights at Parliament Hill. I love how these lights look from inside the car and even better, how they are captured on my camera.

We decided to walk and get close to the Parliament Buldings. It was snowing and the statues were getting frosted. This one is of Terry Fox, the young man with cancer who ran the Marathon of Hope across Canada (with one leg!!) to raise money for cancer research.

The majestic Parliament Buildings as seen from across the street. The whole area has lights on every tree. The buildings themselves have giant snowflakes projected onto them.

Here's a closer version of the buildings, with the Peace Tower at the top of the image and the eternal flame at the bottom. To see an excellent photo go to Richard's blog.
