Where In Ottawa XLI

Fall is clearly in the air, the days are getting shorter, and the weather is crisp and clear.

This is my favourite time of year, when the coloured leaves crunch underfoot and you can see your breath, but the snow hasn't come yet. This is the time of year that I really like to get out and take photographs.

And this weekend, I got out to shoot a trail in Gatineau Park, to photograph something I've been meaning to shoot for years—something that isn't far from my neighbourhood—and shoot a location for my monthly blog contest.

The forty-first edition of Where In Ottawa is ready to go. If you haven't played this challenge before—or even if you have but you've forgotten the rules—here are the conditions of play.
  • The following photograph was taken somewhere in the greater Ottawa region. Your job: locate it.
  • If you think you know the location of the structure in the image, leave your guess in the Comments section of this post. Answers sent to me by Twitter, Facebook, e-mail, or any other method than by writing a guess in the Comments section do not qualify for this challenge. I will not reply to any other form of guess.
  • If you were with me when I took the photo, you may not participate in the challenge.
  • If you have played and won Where In Ottawa in the past, you may still participate; however, if you guess correctly, no giveaway will be awarded.
  • The first person to correctly identify the location of the object in the photograph will receive an autographed paperback copy of my novel, Songsaengnim: A Korea Diary.
  • You may leave as many guesses as you want.
  • The winner of Where In Ottawa has until the end of November, 2014, to claim his or her giveaway. The book will not be awarded after November 30.
That's basically it. So are you ready? Here is this month's photo:

Think you know Ottawa? Prove it!

And good luck!
