GALLERIES -- Date : May 13, 2017
Time : 5:55 AM
Location : Ashbridges Bay Park
It was cold -5 degree Saturday morning.
Thin ice is still visible on the water, and I had to walk past a lot of frozen H2O to get a good spot for sunrise with the park split as the foreground in the middle.
It only took a couple of long exposure shots to call it a day as I didn’t bring my shooting gloves.
Named after British loyalist from Philadelphia Sarah Ashbridge, it was once part of a 5 sq. km march on the Don River Delta, which has one of the largest wetlands in eastern Canada.
Due to industrial development and sewage disposal into the marsh, Toronto Harbour Commission drained the marsh in 1912 and reclaimed the land in which today's park is located.

Location: Humber Bay Park East, Toronto.
This is first entry in the ‘Chasing the Sun’ series as I try to capture its glaze, be it setting or rising…
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…
