Toronto: A Million Skyline Looks.

During the recent travel blogger conference (TBEX) in Toronto, I attended an after-party on Centre Island, one of the Toronto Islands. On the short ferry ride to get out to the chain islands out in Lake Ontario, it became apparent that I was going to be giving the beautiful and expansive skyline lots of eyeball time.

Do you see the plane that’s about to land at nearby Toronto Island Airport?

It was getting later in the evening so each shot brought a little more darkness.

More and more people were bringing their conversations and fun out onto the outside decks getting their smart phones and cameras ready. Some people had their umbrellas out as it was raining lightly, but that wasn’t going to stop the skyline photo madness. πŸ™‚

It’s wasn’t just the tower that was front and center. At times, the sky was lighting up perfectly behind it.

I grabbed a couple of more shots from along the railing…

There she sits, all it up and the CN Tower is standing tall. I loved how the colors reflected off the night waters of Lake Ontario.

The ferry ride back concluded the Toronto city photo madness. πŸ™‚

It was a night of fun and a million skyline looks. Each one seemed better than the next. We docked and I was once again within all the buildings that I spent a lot of the evening capturing.

What skyline or other scenes have you just clicked your camera over-and-over again from daylight to night?
