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.
The Toronto skyline surrounded by clouds. I was sunset chasing and snapped this one before the sunset as I really loved how fluffy the clouds were. If you couldn’t tell, the Toronto skyline is one of my favourite photographic subjects.
I really loved the way the sun looked as it set over the lake. I really wanted a starburst effect so I shot this image at f/22 and 1/1600 sec to achieve it. I love sunsets of all kinds but you have to admit that ones by the water are truly special.
It’s true what they say that the air by the water feels different. This secluded area by Lake Ontario is one of my favourite discoveries this summer. I love sitting here and listening to the water lapping by the rocks and watching the waves meet the shore. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot some ducks with their ducklings nearby. If you’re even luckier, you’ll see a lovely sunset reflected off the water.
I brought my camera with me to the cemetery and found a bunch of lovely flowers to photograph. We usually associate flowers with spring but there are definitely some gorgeous ones that pop up in the summer!
The first sunset of summer! We were definitely blessed by Mother Nature on this evening. The clouds in the afternoon looked wispy and hazy and I had a strong hunch we would be getting an intense sunset. And let me say, I really love it when I’m right!
One of my favourite things is just seeing the sky transform and change during sunsets like these. The sky changes from yellow to orange to red to pink and purple. I’m always snapping away, taking a million photos and trying to balance that out with trying to enjoy the spectacle before me.
I can only hope we have a bunch more of sunsets like these ahead of us!
First official day of summer, here we are! After what felt like forever, it has arrived! I’m not quite sure what kind of flowers these are, but they are so pretty! The tree pictured in the first two photos was a lot bigger than it looks. I felt so calm and at peace standing underneath it. It almost felt like a whole different world where sound was muted and the sunlight peeking through the leaves was warm and bright.
And like most floral related things this year, when we came back a week later, most of the flowers had sadly already dried up.
A calm scene by Lake Ontario. This place is so serene and so calming, I love being here. There’s always a good photograph or video to come out of any visit here. Check out my Instagram Reels for stunning videos from this day!
