Natural landscapes: Radiant Red
AUTUMN AT MEECH LAKE, GATINEAU PARK, QUEBEC
This glorious park, across the provincial border from Canada’s capital city (Ottawa), provides a cornucopia of images any time of year. I travelled there with the goal of photographing autumn colours and, as you can see, I hit the jackpot at this beautiful spot.
Ironically, the name ‘Meech Lake’ is etched in recent Canadian political history – a 1987 constitutional deal between the federal government and the 10 provinces was hammered out at a resort on this lake. The Meech Lake Accord was hugely controversial and ultimately failed. But the lake continues to impress the discerning eyes of nature lovers.

Wow! What an incredible shot!
Thanks for the kind comment 🙂
I was wondering where all the Autumn color was! Beautiful! Our color is very brownish/yellowish/goldish this year, all the vibrant colors have been missing these last two years 😦
Thank you! Yes, autumn colours can be quite a gamble…some years amazing, other years surprisingly bland.
Those colors really pop! Awesome reflection. I may have a new fav!
Thanks, Brian. I definitely timed my visit to this park perfectly. 🙂
Absolutely gorgeous! Great capture!
