    Recently I took a short road trip to Canada, mostly in Montreal and Quebec City. This is a very photogenic area with the bonuses of great food and beer. I brought an E-M5 with 14, 20 and 45. Definitely recommended for a fun trip.

    Here are a few shots from Day 1 from walking in the streets.

    We were walking by the old Bank of Montreal and there was a model shoot going on so I grabbed a couple of shots with the 45. Let us know when your outfit is ready!

    Days 3 & 4 - Quebec City
    The old part of Quebec City is excellent to walk around and photograph, which is good since parking is hard to find. A lot of Canadian history and a comfortable place to be. Cirque Du Soleil performs free during the summer (under a highway overpass) and we also saw the Nouvelle France parade. Both were so good to watch that I didn't concentrate on shooting and just had fun looking.

    Day 5 in Ottawa. It's a low-key capital city but an interesting place to visit.

    Every evening Parliament is illuminated by a light show. There is banding in this one with the 20 at 3200 unfortunately.https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7108/7770524226_72d52b8765_c.jpg"><br>

    Bunch of great shots in there! I really like the first and last shots from day 2, though it's hard to pick a favorite :smile:

    Nice to see some visitor's photos to three of my favorite North American cities - thanks for sharing.

    If you're in the Ottawa region for a while, you might want to photograph the Byward Market or a walk along the Rideau Canal, the diverse architecture of Spark St, the sprawling fields of sunflowers and golden wheat at the Central Experimental Farm, or the beautiful scenery at Lake Pink in the Gatineau Hills 15 just minutes out of town. If it rains, the War Museum and Museum of Canadian Civilization are each breathtaking in their owns ways.

    Enjoy!

    Yes, the Byward Market is one of the nicest places to go shopping. There certainly is nothing like it where i am in the midwest. Thanks for the tips!

    Forgot about these pics from Niagara Falls from the tail end of the trip. One of the shots shows what you probably don't want to use to go over a waterfall. Now it's time for me to move on and learn how to use the 12-35mm.
