Remembrance National Ceremony in Ottawa, Ontario

Every Friday we feature an inspirational travel photo of a Canadian destination taken by one of our readers.

Photo by Greg Kolz (Michael Ignatieff/Flickr CC)

Why we chose it: Today is Remembrance Day in Canada. This photo incorporates nearly everything there is to experience at the official Remembrance Day Ceremony in the nation’s capital: buglers, bagpipers and soldiers in formation. The photographer shows off an amazing command of depth of field and captures a soothing nice colour palette in an event that’s usually a sea of red uniforms. A poignant image befitting a somber event.
