there goes another Canadian stereotype

When most (non-Canadians) think of Canada, "snow" is probably one of the first words to come to mind. Here is a dispelling image from my return to Toronto from Elora, taken January 27.

Super interesting, Rick. Although I do believe snow makes everything much more beautiful.

@Michael Skorulski: Yes, a blanket of snow certainly works wonders on the concrete and glass morass. Thanks.

This kind of view is not unfortunately a Canadian exclusivity!

Just like here, weather wise. The cityscape, however, is quite different!

Fog and traffic. A realistic view of life!

An excellent urban image! I like the row of streetlights on. Finally it is not so different from that of our larger cities! Many cars on the streets and maybe pollution. You're right to think of Canada is to think of snowy landscapes ...

An excellent PoV captured here with quite an atmosphere created by the rain storm! The street lights and brake lights first had me do a double-take thinking that selective coloring was used.

@maurizio: Ha ha... a good team this year, so let's hope they can top off a successful season with some tangible playoff results. Same for the Maple Leafs.
