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…
