Toronto - Another favorite city

I just got back from a quick trip to Toronto. I had two goals on this trip: One was to get some pictures of Niagara Falls at night and the other was to get out to Toronto Island ,which is directly across from downtown, and get a good shot of the city at dusk. I had been out there once before but the weather was not very good and I wanted to get a good clear sky.

Shooting Niagara Falls is tough. It is lit until 11pm but the lighting is constantly changing from white to different colors. After I looked at all my shots, I liked this close up shot the best. The movement of the water and the warm lighting really works for me.

The next night was my chance to get out to Toronto Island and see if the weather would cooperate. It did! Not only was the weather perfect, but they were testing new lights on the CN Tower, changing the colors every couple of minutes (for a total of 20 minutes). The best part of being on Toronto Island at 9pm is that there is nobody out there and I can relax and shoot and enjoy the time by myself. The last ferry heads back to the city at 11pm, so that is my only restriction.
