The Tulips are Blooming in Ottawa

 

In Ottawa springtime means lots and lots of tulips blooming all over the city. These images were taken at Dow’s Lake, a few days before the official start of the tulip festival. Despite rain and cool temperatures, people were out viewing the tulips.

Walking along the paths lined with tulip beds, some in full bloom and others not yet ready, I captured tulips as well as people out enjoying their evening. On my way back as the light was dimming, reflections, ducks and lastly, an elegantly lit doorstep caught my eye.

      1. that is a lovely, philosophy to work from Beth!! It really conveys not just the tulips and the ‘day’s event’ but how you were relating to them too. I love that kind of art!!
