Autumn Landscapes in Toronto on November 6th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

We visited Jack Darling Memorial Park for the first time back in the summer and I remember thinking to myself at that time that we needed to come back in the fall. I just knew that all those green trees but in shades of reds and oranges would be the most beautiful sight and boy, was I right! Sometimes, you really need to be at the right place at the right time and that couldn’t be more true with these photos. We were here closer to golden hour and the way the trees were lit up with that golden light was just absolutely stunning. At times, it looked as if the trees were on fire because they were so gold. I’ve never seen anything like it and I couldn’t help but be thankful that my love of photography has brought me to so many wonderful scenes.

Autumn Scenes at Evergreen Brickworks in Toronto on October 31st, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

Evergreen Brickworks is hands down one of my favourite places to visit during autumn. Our first visit of the autumn season was on Halloween day. We were here on Halloween of last year as well. While I was able to capture some gorgeous scenes both times, it was interesting to see the difference. The leaves were a lot farther along in their transformations last year, for sure. We only visited on Halloween this year since any time before then, the leaves were still green. Last year, Halloween was our second visit of the season and many of the trees were looking a little bare by that point.

We climbed up the steep hill here for the first time and the view from up top was so beautiful. I’ve never gotten photos like that before and I’m so happy I was able to see that view with my own eyes. As much as I love the other seasons, autumn is my favourite to photograph. Which is ironic as I despise the shorter days and the sunsets that occur earlier and earlier during this time.

Autumn Scenes in Caledon, Ontario on October 24th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

The green leaves in Toronto may have been lagging but the ones in Caledon got a head start. I can now see why so many people venture to Caledon, Ontario to do some foliage sightseeing. Something about being surrounded by fall foliage feels so grounding. My favourite views were the winding roads with red and orange trees on either side. If you’re able to visit Caledon during autumn, I highly recommend it!

Autumn Scenes at Niagara-on-the-Lake on October 23rd, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

Hello Niagara-on-the-Lake, it’s been a while! This small town is one of my favourite places due to how quiet and quaint it is. It had been a while since we last visited so we decided to head down one weekend. It’s hard to believe these photos were taken in late October. In previous years, red and orange leaves were already in full swing everywhere. This year, it has been unseasonably warm which has prolonged the green leaves of summer. The nature lover in me is ecstatic she could finally capture a people-less photo of the gazebo but the fall foliage lover in me is disappointed she couldn’t take autumn versions of these photos. I thought back to the reds and oranges filling up my phone’s camera roll during October of last year and couldn’t help but feel disappointed. I knew eventually that the weather would cool down and that we would get red leaves but it’s very concerning that it had taken so long.

A Rainbow Over Lake Ontario on October 17th, 2021.

I’ve never seen a rainbow over the lake quite like this before. Sometimes, you really just have to be at the right place at the right time. We drove down to the lake for some fresh air and ended up finding a rainbow instead! Looks like there’s a pot of gold right across the lake, too!

Overcast Day in Toronto on September 26th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

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.

Waterscapes at Blue Hour on September 25th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

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!
