Walk around frigid Ottawa
Lens: DA35 F2.4 Camera: K-X Photo Location: Ottawa

Walking around downtown Ottawa with my K-X and DA35. It was -25C but it didn't stop people from enjoying Winterlude.

I had a great time doing it. My wife was pretty happy that I left her and her girlfriends to skate so I could walk around and take pictures... I actually did see 3 or 4 guys with big fancy Canons and tripods along the canal. I couldn't help but laugh a bit while pedestrians were trying to navigate round them in the dark, ice and snow. I liked being a bit more discrete

Thanks for the comments,
Matt

The canal is certainly less busy once winterlude is over. Feb 21st is the last day, after that the canal is open but the ice sculptures and other festivities are done. I recommend to everyone if they want to visit Ottawa in the winter, early February when winterlude is on is the best time. If you miss that though there is still enough to do as long as the skate way is open.
