Date : May 6, 2017
Time : 6:03 AM
Location : Ashbridge Bay Park

Ashbridges Bay Park is located in a beautiful area on the waterfront in the east end of Toronto. It was named after Sarah Ashbridge, a widow and British loyalist from Philadelphia who settled here in the 1790’s and obtained a Crown Land Grant to start her own farm. Ashbridges Bay was once part of the large sand dune chain spanning the majority of the Toronto Harbour. These dunes were the result of sediment from the Scarborough Bluffs being deposited by the currents from Lake Ontario.
Portions of The Martin Goodman and Waterfront trails pass through the north end of Ashbridges Bay Park.  – Toronto Parks

It was cold -5 Deg C saturday morning. Thin ice are still visible on the water and I had to walk past a couple of iced water to get a good spot for sunrise with the park spit as the foreground in the middle… took only a couple of long exposure shots to call it a day as I didn’t bring my shooting gloves…

Location : Brant Street Pier in Burlington

Brant Street Pier is a signature destination and attraction located in Spencer Smith Park at the Waterfront at Downtown Burlington. It extends 137 metres over Lake Ontario that provides views of the lake and Burlington’s shoreline. Wikipedia
It was cold that morning as I walked towards the pier to find a perfect spot to affix my tripod for the sunrise, with a camera bag on my shoulder, a tripod on my left hand and a large hot Tim Hortons coffee on my right hand, I slowly trudge from the parking lot towards the viewing deck of the pier. There were already a couple of photographers in there who were earlier than myself waiting for the sun to rise… as I finished my hot beverage, I too positioned my camera and tripod on one spot and waited for that elusive sun….. and waited… 6:33AM came….

Date: April. 29, 2017.
Time: 6:35 PM
Location: Humber Bay Park East, Toronto.

It was a chilly afternoon as I stop my car in the parking lot of Humber Bay Park on the east side, as I projected that the sunset would come from the North West of the park.
This is a location where visitors will watch the time fly by as it offers scenery of the waterfront of Etobicoke.
Entrance to the park is at the end of Park Lawn road south.
The day was clear except for a few clouds scattered on the horizon of the setting sun, and the crystal water reflects the rays of the sun as it slowly faded in the sky…
