A Moody Yellow Sunset on January 30th, 2022.

Digital, 2022.

I ended up taking these photos by chance. My family and I were off to Ashbridge’s Bay for some fresh air when we happened upon this view while looking for parking. I couldn’t help but be drawn to the colour of the sky and the way its colours reflected off the frozen Lake Ontario. Sunset wasn’t due for another little while but if I didn’t know any better, I would think it was already happening.

Sunset on August 13th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

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.

Purple Twilight at Rouge River on August 8th, 2021.

The sunset on this night was definitely a conversation starter but what follows a beautiful sunset sometimes is a beautiful twilight. The purple sky combined with the mist rising from the horizon was such a sight to see. I couldn’t help but feel it was the perfect end to the day.

Pink Summer Sunset on July 15th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

Such an intense summer sunset!! I was at my usual spot waiting for sundown, but unfortunately the sky remained dull and unchanging. So I decided to leave. I had a feeling that I should have stayed but I didn’t listen to my gut as I should have. There have been many other times where I’d leave thinking nothing would happen only for the sky to start changing minutes later. Sunsets can really be so unpredictable sometimes.

On the drive home, I noticed the sky turning pink. And this wasn’t your standard soft sunset pink. This was a bright pink that was only getting more intense by the moment. We pulled over by a nearby park and I dashed out to photograph whatever I could. Sunsets like these don’t happen every day and I felt so humbled being alone surrounded by a giant expanse of vibrant sky. The energy felt electric and you could smell the incoming rain in the air.

The lighting here was tricky and it made me realize that I really need a new camera that handles low light situations better. I feel regret when I think about the photos that didn’t turn out but there was nothing I could do, both in the moment and in postproduction.

When I felt like I had all of the photos I wanted, the sunset was also starting to fade. Then, there was a sudden shift in the air and I could hear the rain start to make its way in. I grabbed my belongings and made a mad dash to the car before the rain could really get bad. Once I closed the car door, the skies opened up and it just started pouring. Good timing on my part!

What I love about sunsets like these is how they become the talk of the town for the next few days. I really enjoy going on Instagram to see all the other photos my fellow Torontonians have taken. While Toronto is definitely blessed with its fair share of gorgeous sunsets, ones like these don’t happen often and they get all us nature lovers excited!

Brilliant Sunset on June 29th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

This is an example of the type of sunset I look forward to every summer! One that’s bright, vivid, and gets the whole city talking. These two images were taken exactly 5 minutes apart. I couldn’t choose between one or the other so I kept them both. One of my favourite things about sunsets like these is how their colour and cloud formations change.
