Light and Dark
The weatherman says we are going to have a big dump of snow tomorrow, but for the past couple of days, it has been lovely and springlike in downtown Ottawa. The sky has been mostly clear and I have been enjoying shapes created by contrasts of light and dark in the late afternoon. For instance, I was interested in the way the light in the sky framed the red sculpture in the narrow space between the buildings on the Sparks Street Mall.
Sunsets like this are always a treat, especially when the buildings look like sharply-edged silhouettes against a vivid red sky.
The sun is about to go down behind these buildings, but not before creating great long shadows on the ice of the Ottawa river. Cool!
