Winterlude 2010 – Gatineau

This is a part two of the Winterlude 2010 article viewing the Gatineau region – “Ville de Gatineau”, the French half of the Ottawa region. I was in Confederation park on the first Winterlude event (5-7th) and forgot to check out the Rideau Canal and GAnime 2010. Jacques-Cartier Park is located, Here. For the Winterlude event in Confederation park do check out this image heavy article:

Ah, I see my camera didn’t fair too well in this windy and cold weather. For the record all my images from Europe 2008 till now were taken with a “Sony W170 Digital Camera” and has served me well until now. I mostly used ISO and “P” (Auto program) mode which allows me to have some slight control over the camera.

The above and below images are what you basically see when coming through one of the entrances.

And a map just to show you how far Winterlude spreds across the capital and what is located where.

Gatineau = 1

Fifth Avenue = 4

Similar to Confederation Park this place has snow statues from various Provinces and Terroritories of Canada.

Try guessing what flag belongs to what province or territory without looking at this: http://www.canada.gc.ca/

Eating beaver tail and snapping images at the same time, try it.

I didn’t take a picture of the snow maze that was adjacent to this. It was basically a maze out of snow similar to the hedges you see in old European Palaces and such. I forgot to take a picture of it.

Confederation Park looks beautiful at night.

And we’re done for today/tonight. I hope you enjoyed the tour and hope you will join the final one on February 20th to 21st (either or) of the Rideau Canal Skateway :). If my camera doesn’t suddenly lose battery power or if I don’t catch another cold then the next article will contain will contain the planned content. Saving up my camera battery’s energy for that day.
