In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Early Bird.”
I was an early bird last Sunday travelling east along the wide boulevard downtown approaching a cluster of famous Montreal landmarks. Waiting for the green light at the intersection of Peel street and Rene Levesque boulevard I took out my camera and captured this view.
The time was about six thirtyish and a beautiful day was just beginning. The sun’s intense rays bathed the south side of the Sunlife building in front, on the left, and also Place Ville Marie hovering over in front of it. Mary Queen of the World Cathedral and the Queen Elizabeth Hotel (with the Canadian flag) still remained in the shadows far removed from the glistening bright white cloud formation just East of them. The sun also bathed and warmed the trees of Dorchester Square in front of the Sunlife building some glistening off the windshield of an STM autobus approaching our intersection heading South.
As you can see up ahead, heading East, a lot of the tall buildings as well as some of the smaller ones also enjoyed the sun’s early morning rays that warmed the roadway medians melting the remains of our long, harsh, Winter.
