View from the west


I got this nice skyline shot from the west side of the city when I was exploring there recently. This was actually taken from the pedestrian bridge I showed you earlier this week. For more skies, take a look at Skywatch.

I'm glad the weekend is finally here - and it's a long one for us! We've got visitors in town, so that should give me plenty of photo ops and a chance to use my new camera - the Nikon D7000. It's a long and sad story, but my old D3000 stopped working at a most inopportune time (right when I arrived in PEI for the second leg of my Farewell Canada Tour!). After returning from that trip, I looked at all my options and decided to upgrade to the D7000 - I'm hoping it will be worth it.

I really love this picture. The skyscrapers, go train, sky and CN tower look perfect. What is the arched object in front of the tower though?

Beautiful skyline -- and taking it from a ped bridge sounds absolutely perfect.

Nice you'll have a new camera for the rest of your 'farewell tour' and it'll just be broken in perfectly for your new adventure.

A wonderful vista and great angle, an impressive sight all round.

We don't have skylines like this in Sweden. Vey modern it is.

The CN Tower just makes the skyline in this part of Toronto! Did you manage its glass floor?

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
