An older image of mine taken from Toronto Island, making use of a few seconds of exposure. The tires are bumpers for the ferry dock.

WOW ! Rick it's a wonderful view and superb photo of Toronto skyline at night ! beautiful colored reflections of lights and composition ! I fell in love with Toronto and I would have liked making this photo ! 5 stars for me and a Spotlight !

@Anna Cherer: Thank you for the generous comment! As you know from your recent visit, the skyline has grown quite a bit since I took this. I wanted those tires in the frame and thus didn't include most of the western half of the city... I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit. Toronto is very multi-cultural and the neighbourhoods are diverse in the best way. As typical self-effacing Canadians we do not often sing our own praises, but I could do much worse than to live in this place.

@omid: I didn't have my tripod with me and made use of a wide railing near the ferry dock. Thanks a lot !

Ehsan Hemmati from Kermanshah, Iran

Gérard from Allauch, France

No more trees either, but a very beautiful city at night with all these colored reflects. Superb

@Gérard: I very deliberately posted this one to follow yesterday's statement image, but am also happy to tell you that for a city this size we have a lot of trees downtown and in the residential neighbourhoods. I'm just such a tree admirer that even one cut down for no reason, like yesterday's, can upset me greatly. Thanks much!

@Denny Jump: I had about three years worth of older images when I was first a member here, so I'm mixing in the ones I liked most with new shots as I take them and like them, which is only about one in five or so. Mucho thanks, sir Denny!

Joyce from Montana, United States

Love how the water simplifies and expresses it much softer. Takes the best and reflects it. Cool

26 Nov 2017 8:28pm

@Joyce: The six or seven seconds of exposure extend and soften those reflections, too. Fun with cameras ! Thanks.
