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.
