Montreal in the Autumn
The best of Autumn is coming to an end in Montreal. The vivid colours have started turning to different shades of brown and the trees are getting increasingly bare. It won’t be long until we start waking up to frost in the morning – Halloween usually signals a quick descent into the dregs of winter.
But Autumn is, in my opinion, the most beautiful season in Montreal. Here are some photos of the city taken during this season.

WOW, the colors you get in Montreal are stunning!
My favourite place in autumn was the lower gravel road around the base of Mount Royal during autumn. And the music to play for that season is Cesar Franck’s symphony in D minor, especially the first movement.
Ah, a musical connoisseur! I’ll have to listen to that.
Wonderful autumn scene! Would late September to early October be a great time to witness this in Montreal?
Hi Bino – exactly. You get a bit of a variance depending on the weather in a given year but Late Sept – early Oct is generally primetime for leaves.
Wow this is why I love autumn so much, such beautiful colours!
Wow Frank, these photos are gorgeous! Autumn is definitely my favourite season…when I get around to visiting Montreal I will have to time it to coincide with the leafy season 🙂
Montreal is a city I’ve been daydreaming about visiting lately. I’ve heard such great things about it. Your photos have convinced me I definitely need to go, and that it needs to be in the fall!
Hi Sarah. Fall is a great time to go – winter is too cold and summers can actually be too warm (it gets very warm). Plus the colours in the Fall make it really the perfect time.
Autumn is the favourite season for so many and it is easy to see why, so many wonderful colours. Red, green, orange, brown; you’ve captured them all.
Lovely photo essay.
Montreal in the Autumn looks breathtaking! Wonderful photo essay!
Thank you Laura!
Beautiful photos and colors, Frank!

I also wanted to say that I have nominated you for the Liebster Award as recognition of your great work.
Thank you Katherine, that’s very kind of you!
Splendid colours and photos – I love autumn (it is my favourite season, as I am also born during this season).
We don’t get the real autumn foliage here. Australia is just too hot and so loved these photos. I also wanted to say that I have nominated you for the Liebster Award as recognition of your great work.
Hi Paul – you’re my new favorite person! Thank you! I’ve never gotten nominated for anything before! I don’t know anything about the Liebster award – does it require a speech? 🙂 Kidding aside, I’m honored. Do I have to do anything, who chooses, etc?
Great photo essay! I haven’t been to Montreal in the fall but am dying to get back there soon. Love the blog – keep up the great work.
Wow, Montreal looks so beautiful during the autumn season, so charming and colorful. I love the snapshot of local veggie and fruit market. Wish I could stroll down the streets holding a cup of coffee there right now!
Gorgeous pics, Frank!! I love the changing of the seasons, especially the fall colors!!
Thank you Constance, you’re always my favorite commenter!
Love this post – Currently live in the SW (USA) and I miss autumn. Thanks for the bounty of beautiful shots here.
Thank you Maria! I’d love to visit your neck of the woods!
I’ve been meaning to get outside and take some pictures of the leaves before they all hit the ground and your photos may have just provided the motivation I needed. Looks like you had near-perfect weather, too.
Gorgeous fall foliage. Enjoyed seeing the autumn in your city. In Scotland too, the leaves are changing colors everyday, and we could see the winter nearing us 🙂
Thanks Anu! Yes, that’s the worst thing about Autumn – you know winter is coming…
Beautiful shots! I love the vines on the outside of buildings. The shot of the stairs is great, and I love the lake photo with the person walking their dog. Great shots! 🙂
Lovely fall photos of Montreal. The leaves are just beginning to change here in Italy.
Love those beautiful fall colors
I love how the leaves grow along the building. If I was house hunting in Montreal, that would need to be a requirement.
Great post, loved seeing this side of the city.
My favourite is the vines and ivy on the buildings! Calgary is so dry, we don’t really get much vegetation, let alone vegetation that covers buildings. They look so beautiful in their fall colours!
Oh, these photos are killing me and I’m ready to hop the next plane to Montreal! I grew up in Alaska where “fall” lasted about a week where all the birch leaves turned yellow and then we’d have a windy day and they were gone. I spent 8 years in Minnesota and Idaho and fell in love with autumn. It’s the one time that I really miss being back in the states. But, if I can’t be there myself at least I can enjoy your lovely photos. Thanks for sharing!

Oh I just love Fall! The changing of the leaves, the coming of a new season with brisk mornings best spent by the fire with a cup of coffee in hand. Gorgeous photos – I love the one of the lake. It looks like you used a fisheye lens, but I doubt you did! Amazing.
Hi Jessica! Nope, just normal camera on ‘auto’ 😉 Thanks for the compliments!
Lovely shots. I love fall in Canada.
