Photographer's Note

Parliament Hill at Twilight
Photo #600

This is not the first photo of Parliament Hill in Ottawa I post. The other one was taken over a year ago at the end of the afternoon, however I would like to show this twilight version, taken a couple of minutes before sunset, too.

Seen here is Centre Block of the Canadian Parliamentary Complex, which contains the House of Commons and the Senate. It was built between 1916 and 1927 after the original building had burnt down. The 92m-high clock tower, known as the Peace Tower, has become a Canadian icon. People on the lawn here were waiting for a light show, which would start at 10pm.
