Update: March 2017
I’d like to take you on a season-specific view of Parliament Hill. Before I begin, let me say that I specialize in photographs of our Canadian Parliament, so business professionals and creatives can use them in documents, reports and presentations.
I return as often as possible to photograph Parliament Hill in different conditions, seasons and times of day. During the Tulip Festival in Ottawa, I made my way to various locations, to see how the tulips and the parliamentary architecture play together. As you can see, the opportunities for photography were plenty. The image above, 9 PM Politics, was taken from the Canadian Museum of History across the Ottawa river. It’s a beautiful image that would work well as a report cover.
In Major’s Hill park I came upon this scene and had to include Tulips Canada, in the Canadian Parliament collection. Including the statue of Colonel John By adds that perfect touch to a powerful visual.
A short walk from the Parliament Peace Tower, we find the “Confederation Building. Featured here, a low vantage point of red tulips complements the entrance. Just walk around the Hill and you’ll find tulips throughout the Parliamentary precinct.
Wow! Taken behind Parliament, at Major’s Hill park, these giant tulips were created by students from schools across Canada. Celebrating “TulipFest”, they really capture the positive feeling of spring. These bigger than life treasures make a yearly appearance in May. So set your clock forward and enjoy!
Let’s not forget that spring also brings the beauty of Lilacs. Parliamentary Lilacs is now part of the collection.
Below, see the spring additions to the Canadian Parliament photo collection.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these few spring Parliament photos. Other springtime photos were added. The 250+ collection includes Seasons, CanadaDay, Silhouettes, Christmas and the Library of Parliament. Photos start at $12 and are available for immediate download. Extended and multi-user licenses are options. All photos are magazine quality and noise-free.
Thank you for reading and have a nice evening!
