Melancholy Sunrise

It all started with so much promise, delicate pink, fiery orange and hot yellow but within just a few brief moments the glorious, colourful sunrise was swallowed by brooding, low hanging, nay skulking swathe of cloud.

With the joy of colour stripped from it, the morning's promise of lightness and fun was replaced with chilling brooding hollowness. True to form, the day ended in snow. Not that fluffy, light fun-filled snow but that "isn't winter over yet and when can I put the furniture back on the deck?" forewarning of a sullen, tedious, slippery commute the next morning.

Oh, happy Sunday, you 50% Grey dream stealer in the sky!!

The sleeping giant awakens

Snow on April 2nd, -7C as the sun comes up on April 3rd. We should be seeing daffodils and crocus at this time of year!

A ship makes its way out to the lake as the rest of the city wakens from a chilly, chilly night.

First Cast of the Day

Sometimes, when the primary objective of the expedition doesn't deliver quite as expected, one has to look for "Plan B". This morning the sun rose then hid behind some clouds on the horizon. The colour was there but without the 'fireworks'.

Thankfully, a chap came along and started to fish from the end of the pier. The rest, as they say, is history!

Almost a 40C swing in temperature from last Saturday to today. Strong winds pushed the breaking ice to the east shoreline. Melting in the evening sun, is this a cat looking for supper below? ;)

When it's too chill for Brass Monkeys to get out of bed!

A sudden drop of temperature over the unseasonably warm lake creates some interesting mist as the sun rises on Lake Ontario. With a wind chill of -28C I was the only one out this morning!

For the second time in three months my car was rear-ended and I had no hesitation in taking it to +Waterdown Collision for repair. The repair was exactly as promised and they made the whole business as simple and painless as possible, including arranging a rental for the period. The cost was all covered by insurance but +Waterdown Collision's service was exemplary. This is the only shop that I will take my cars to - nobody matches their quality and service.

Toronto Skyline at Night

Was a lovely, balmy August evening. Just me, my wife and a gazillion flying insects on the Toronto Islands looking back at the city. With all the ferries, boat traffic and aircraft it was a challenge to find 30 seconds of calm!

Am working through re-shooting some photos from the past 18 months. I took this same shot just over a year ago when +Wes Hardaker was in town and we shared an afternoon and evening wandering and shooting the city. Was fun to do this again! (My wife stood in for Wes this time!).

Tiger, tiger, burning bright....

Just got my D750 back after it was in for both service recalls. I have to say that the folks at Nikon Canada were awesome! My car was rear-ended as I left their office...ugh! So had two weeks with a broken car and no camera. So happy to be reunited!

This is a little hidden gem in the greenhouse at the Royal Botanical gardens, Burlington. #RoyalBotanicalGardens   #RBG

Last Wednesday the Perseid meteor shower was scheduled to peak, so I headed out to the darkest (accessible) spot within half an hour of home. Fully expecting to be the only person in this remote spot I was surprised to find the parking lot full of cars, people and telescopes - some of which looked like they needed at least two people to carry!
The meteor shower was impressive, if not a bit of a lottery - choosing the right part of the sky to look at, at the right time. Equally impressive was the Milky Way, visible as a murky cloud - the first time I've seen it by eye, so close to a heavily populated area. So glad I made the decision to head out that night, clicking away to the "Oooohs" and "Aaaahs" from the collected crowd as another meteor streaked across the sky.
