Cityscape/Weekend reflections

Toronto seen from Humber Bay Park East

I like the juxtaposition here. Toronto is growing taller but parts of Humber Bay Park are staying wild and wonderful. But as you can see, city reflections are encroaching on the park.

To enjoy reflections from around the world, visit James at Weekend Reflections HERE

Cities are like cornfields except that cornfields can be harvested once every year and then you can begin again.

I love the beautiful buildings on the background and the reflections are wonderful, great shot, it's like a postcard!

Fantastic cityscape, reflection and nature shot all wrapped into one. Oh, and the sky - gracious! You really hit the jackpot with this photo.

Beautiful photo and reflection!

Janie said...

I do like the juxtaposition of city and wilderness. Let's hope only the occasional reflection encroaches on that natural bit of park.

'Tis a lovely skyline and I hope someday to see it in person!

Sylvia K said...

A lovely skyline it is indeed and I, too, would love to see it in person! Great capture for the day, EG, as always! Have a beautiful weekend!

Jack said...

Urban life on EG's blog! That is rare. But, she turns out to be as adept with urban images as rural images.

Susan said...

Beautiful skyline

Very pretty!

It looks like a painting EG, beautiful! I remember having a short visit a few years back in Toronto as we were heading home from Watertown NY when our son got out of the Army.

Karen said...

Great reflections of the city.

Fun60 said...

It is good that you can still see the wildness of nature despite the encroaching city boundaries. A great reflective picture in more ways than one.

Jackie/Jake said...

It really does look like a painting. I took a lot of shots at Humber Bay West this week.

A new view of Toronto for me. Lovely capture and wonderful subtle reflections.

Love the effect of the glossy skyline with the soft bushes on the foreground.

Sue said...

Love the way this is so different than your usual photos, and yet so much the same.
