Heading home around 6 the other day and noticed the most amazing midnight blue sky. With all the light polution in the downtown Toronto area, the sky often has a muddy look. But something about that early evening turned the sky an intense blue. I tried to capture a couple of pictures, but my little cell phone camera doesn't do good night shots. The photos came out better than I had hoped for.
With the exception of a bit of cropping, the photos are not retouched. The blue came out just about perfect - far better than I thought they would. I was standing outside the Hothouse Cafe on Front Street, just down from the Flat Iron building.
I walked up the street a bit, looking at the steam billowing out of the TD building. At that point, I wished I had a camera that did night shots. The lights are a bit off, but the colours are spot on:
I took a series of shots and within 20 minutes the blue had faded away.
