Bitter Grounds - espresso fueled ramblings

Saturday, April 21, 2018

I get some wonderful views from our balcony. One advantage of being 20 floors up with an unhindered view of the city. Every now and then, I look up and think "WOW". Last Sunday was one of those days. Here's what I saw:Sunset Toronto north view

I didn't retouch the photos although it looks like I tried to blend the golden sunset colours into the building lights. When I looked out over the city, it looked as if someone had brushed gold over it. Just one of those nifty moments in life that make you stop.

 

Here are a couple other views:

Golden sunset over TorontoThe last one was cool - you can just see the moon shining through the blue and gold. They were all taken in about a 10 min time period, with the colours fading fast. The gold vanished shortly after these photos captured it. For a few brilliant moments, the city looked like it was onfire and then it was gone.
