Skywatch Friday

The first two photos were taken outside of Much Music on Queen Street in Toronto last week. Its a lovely blue sky, but it was bitter cold, in the minus 30's that day. I did a couple of other posts on my "adventures" down there if you have time to read them? Part 1 Part 2 and Part 3 will be posted on Monday January 26th.



I did post this last photo on one of my other posts, it was taken the same day just down the street from Much Music, I just love this photo, it was taken as I was walking across the street, just a quick click and hope something turned out and it did. For those of you who don't know it's the CN Tower in Toronto.

Gill, all three pictures of the sky (and the city) are beautiful. Hopefully it won't be as cold when you go back there.

I love citiscape shots! They are simply wonderful! The clouds rolling by in the first two are terrific... -30°!!! Holy cow!

MINUS THIRTIES??

Holy moley. I'm glad you and your camera didn't freeze, because the photos are gorgeous: you make the city look something majestic and wonderful.

Keep warm, and Happy Skywatch Friday!

Toronto is a great place for taking pictures. Wonderful photos of the buildings, clouds and sky! The CN Tower looks nice. :)

How on earth do you survive -30 Brrr!

The sky is a wonderful shade of blue the air must be very clear. If it wasn't for the trees it would look like summer.

Carver said...

These are all beautiful sky shots in the city.

You must get quite a view from that tower. It must be ideal for SWF.

It's strange that blue skies in winter mean frost. I prefer frost to this dreary wet grey days we had this week. Great photos!

Kathy said...

Gill these are great shots. Its a shame it has to be so cold when the sky is so blue. I swear I will stop complaining when its 30 above 0. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Rudee said...

It's a deceiving sky. One would think it wasn't so cold.

Titania said...

It does not look at all like winter with this sunny sky, it is probably good I an not feel the cold!

Mojo said...

Brrr....!
let me thank you for braving the deadly cold to bring us these. I love the cloud shrouding the top floors of the building. Can't help but wonder what that looked like from inside!

Photo Cache said...

Great photos. Have a good weekend.

Olga said...

lol: at first I thought the last photo was Seattle Space Needle!

cheshire wife said...

How strange that the sky at minus 30 can look as blue as the sky at plus 30! Great photos.

Lovely city shots. Can't really comprehend those cold temperatures though. Here it is hot and humid despite having had some lovely rain overnight.

I can feel the cold in those pictures, but the air is clear and dry. Great angle on the CN Tower.

Wren said...

The tower looks very alien, doesn't it?

Toronto is on my list of must visit places. A very good friend's brother lives there and they have visited him and told us all about the city. Beautiful.

Strawberry Jam Anne said...

Sanna said...

I wondered how you had been able to capture the moon reflecting on the wall until I clicked to get the larger photo. ;O) That's one of the dangers with old laptops. =/

Very nice photos there ... and there is food and recipes in your blog too. Perfect! =)

Grammy said...

The tall building in the first two photos looks like it's smoking!
Cool shot of the tower.
