A few early Autumn images at Parc Lafontaine

Somehow I neglected to post some images that I took back on 24th September when I took a late afternoon stroll around parc Lafontaine. Since it had officially turned Autumn the day before I had gone to check if there were any fall colours showing.

I made my way to Parc Lafontaine via rue Prince Arthur. The late afternoon sun was catching the hanging baskets that provided a nice vibrant touch to the street that was now partly shaded. In processing I added some blur and warmth (using Topaz Labs Lens Effects).

Some early Autumn images at Parc Lafontaine

There was still a lot of green in the trees when I visited and they’re probably looking quite different now – a good excuse for me to revisit for an update next week.

Just after taking the above shot, two nuns passed by and I turned quickly to grab a shot.

With unseasonably high temperatures it was a great afternoon to be outside and many people were taking advantage of the great weather and getting a late boost to their summer tans.
