A cloudy day spent at Jack Darling Memorial Park. Even though it was cloudy and a little hazy, I’m pleased with how these photos came out. Personally, I think sunny days are usually boring and unflattering in regards to outdoor photography so I love taking photos when it’s cloudy. I’m looking forward to hopefully visiting this park again once the leaves start to change colour.
You can only imagine my amazement once I stepped on to the beach here not expecting much only to be greeted with this view. The skyline is lit up by the city lights, yes, but the majority of that golden light came from the last remaining glow of sunset. What a sight to see in person! I also adored the way the clouds were reflected against the lake’s surface and how beautiful they were lit up.
I don’t usually experiment with long exposures but seeing how lovely these came out makes me want to reconsider. I initially took my shots without a tripod and didn’t really like how they were turning out. I was running out of time and considered it a lost cause. Luckily, my brother was determined to get a shot and he ran to the car to grab the tripod. Great intuition on his part as these images wouldn’t exist otherwise. It’s been so long since I’ve taken a nighttime city shot and now I’m motivated to try and take more!
Hello Niagara, it’s been a while! I’d guess it’s been around 2 years since I’ve last paid a visit. I love Niagara Falls and though I probably already have variations of all these images from past years, I can’t help but to take any photo I can every time I get the chance to visit.
On this day, it was very hazy and the forecast promised rain all day. Though once you’re close enough to the falls, you can’t help but ask yourself if it’s rain or mist surrounding you. Either way, this weather resulted in the most beautiful lighting, especially when the sun would peek out occasionally. Some moments I felt like it was early morning due to the lighting.
I’d like to visit Niagara again and Niagara-on-the-Lake while I’m at it. Hopefully the next time won’t be another two years.
I’m so glad I was able to see this storm rolling in in person. We were parked by the lake and decided to wait it out there to see what would happen. I recorded a time-lapse and posted it to my Instagram Reels and it was so cool seeing for myself just how the clouds moved in. These were all taken from inside the car because I did not want to risk being close by the lake while thunder and lightning were increasing in frequency.
A vibrant sunset at the end of August. Wow, this one was a stunner! These are the kinds of sunsets I look forward to the most, where the sky actually looks like it’s on fire. Whenever I’m done taking photos, I can’t wait to load them up on to my laptop for editing. I’m going to miss sunsets like these once winter rolls around.
The Humber River at the end of August. If you want magnificent views of the city’s skyline, this is one of the places to go. Sitting on the beach was so lovely with the calm waters and the CN Tower in the distance. I’m looking forward to what it will look like here during autumn when all the leaves turn red.
This was one of the prettiest sunsets I’ve seen in a while. We were lucky enough to find an empty bench to sit on to do some sunset watching. Everything about this sunset was gorgeous, from the clouds directly above the setting sun to the clouds over by the city’s skyline. The cloud cover approaching the city almost reminded me of a wave. Not only that but the clouds’ colours went from orange to yellow to pink to purple. Even with all the haziness in the atmosphere, we were able to see the moon peeking through as well. This sunset kept transforming and had me photographing everything lest I miss something.
