Tree Branches in Shadow Against a Calm Blue Sky on November 6th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

I really loved the contrast between the tree and the sky. I thought the shape of the tree and its branches were interesting so I paired them with the clear backdrop of the sky to accentuate them more.

Orange Sunset on October 11th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

It’s been a month since this photo was taken and I still wish I could have seen it at one of my usual sunset viewing locations. Even more so since I had a hunch that that evening’s sunset would be on the more intense side. That afternoon, the clouds had that hazy quality to them that I’ve begun to assciciate with vibrant and intense sunsets. In the evening, I looked out the kitchen window just before sunset and was simultaneously elated and disappointed with what I saw. So I grabbed my camera and rushed outside to the backyard to photograph whatever I could. I’m thankful I was able to capture something, at least. It always becomes a little bit more difficult for me to go sunset chasing when the days get shorter and shorter. Winter hasn’t even begun yet and here I am missing those long, warm, summer nights.

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.

Red Sunset at Rouge River on August 8th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

Photographing an intense sunset at Rouge River has always been on my photography bucket list. I’m so glad I was lucky enough to be able to photograph one. After a hazy day, I had an inkling that we would be getting an intense sunset. That seemed to be the norm on other hazy days so I was super excited for what was hopefully to come. I sat down on the beach with my camera and my phone, ready to take some photos and videos.

When the sky started to turn orange, I knew we were in for a treat. When the sun started to descend, I couldn’t believe my eyes in how defined it was in the sky. When it sank past the bridge, I was in awe at the obvious gradient of colour that covered it. I felt like I was looking at a spread from a photography magazine. I had to make sure I wasn’t staring at the sun for prolonged periods of time for obvious reasons.

I only wish I were able to take a photo of just the sun in the sky or the sun over the landscape. But I didn’t want to move from my spot on the beach and risk not making it to another area quick enough. I would rather have some photos than no photos at all. I wanted to return to take alternate photos but was unable to. At this point in the year, it’s too late for conditions that prompt a hazy sky. And just like that, there’s a new addition to my photography bucket list!

Sunset on March 6th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

Another Toronto sunset. I had fun merging two images in the first photo to get an HDR edit. It’s definitely something I want to experiment with more in the future. I like having the option of having the skyline visible or shrouded in shadow, depending on what mood I’m going for. Here, I liked the way both turned out!

Sunset on March 5th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

Another brilliant Toronto sunset. Sunsets like these near the end of winter feel like a light at the end of the tunnel. I personally don’t mind winter and I love the photographic opportunities, but by the end, it really starts to eat away at me. I look forward to the longer days and the sunsets at 8 or 9pm. We still have a little while longer to go but with vivid skies like these, the wait feels a little easier.
