Extreme Clouds Over Parliament Hill (Ottawa)
This is was an unplanned shot – a lucky accident. We were visiting friends in Ottawa on Christmas eve, and the entire day the weather was very gloomy with grey, dull skies, something that’s fairly normal for the beginning of winter in Eastern Canada. And unfortunately, that means also means zero opportunity for landscape or travel photography.
Before going to our friend’s place, I decided to give my wife and daughter a tour of the National Gallery of Canada, a place I like mostly because of it architecture. After the short tour, we walked out of the gallery and turned around the corner to visit Nepean Point. This is the scene we saw. It lasted only a few minutes, but it was enough for me take a few interesting shots.
The moral here is to be ready for unexpected. In my case I was not ready but I got lucky anyway :-).
