Toronto/Sky Watch

Sky over Toronto as seen from the Don Valley Parkway

The Don Valley Parkway (aka DVP or affectionately the Don Valley Parking Lot as the traffic sometimes often moves very, very slowly) is a north-south highway that goes between Toronto and (after it magically transforms into Hwy 404 without most drivers even noticing) East Gwillimbury.

To see tons of beautiful skies from around the world, visit  Sky Watch

Beautiful sky shot. I can't recall ever seeing one this color before.

Halcyon said...

Ah yes... I already know this parking lot. The sky is beautiful. I need to get out and shoot more. Wish it would warm up!

Would you ever like to meet up in Toronto or elsewhere? I am not working at the moment and have loads of free time for photographing!

see you there! said...

If you had this view it would distract you a little from the pain of sitting in that Parking Lot.

A soft and lovely sky!
With its dusty pink sky and golden horizon it would look more at home over the prairie than Toronto. :)

Great sky! I avoid the DVP whenever possible.

At one time I commuted on that every morning!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

I see I am not the only one thinking of a spacecraft above the city! This is great!

Pretty views of the sky from the road, nice of the traffic to slow down long enough for everyone to appreciate the view

I know this parking lot! You've captured a very "industrial" looking sky over Hogtown, yet poignant.

I always come to your blog with a sense of anticipation. Lovely shot, as though the sky is reflecting back on itself.

Shammickite said...

Another impressive sunset. It's all a matter of being at the right place at the right time to get those marvellous sunset pictures. I always seem to be in the WRONG place.....

Janie said...

The sky shot is gorgeous. It's good that there's something pretty to look at while waiting for the traffic to move.

Genie said...

I love the tones in your photo. It is almost like an art deco area painting.

Gorgeous sunset, but is it me or does it look like a giant face blowing smoke onto the city ;-P

Sounds a lot like Los Angeles freeways. Can't say I miss those at all. A traffic jam during the mill shift lasts about five minutes and is easily avoided. - Margy

forgetmenot said...

What a great capture-- beautiful "glowing" sun and such a huge heavy cloud above it. Have a great weekend. Mickie :)

afanja said...

Wish you a happy weekend!

Inger-M said...

I love that sky, so beautiful!

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

We have parking lots like that here, too. More so in Orlando and Miami but on occasion even in Ocala. Just ask some of the thousands of good folks of Ontario who visit here each winter. (I've seen lots of Ontario cars in Ocala this year!)

Nice sunset, too! A golden glow.

Tanya said...

love the warm colors of your sunset!!
