Today, it is raining. But until now, it has been hot and steamy and the air thick with smog as can be seen in this view from Balmy Beach in the eastern end of Toronto.

Participating in Our World Tuesday

  1. I think the best (and possibly only good) thing about smogs is that they can lead to remarkable sunsets and sunrises. But I have to say that this shot looks hot! SM

  2. Really surprised by the smog in your photo. Just didn’t realise it was something you experienced in Toronto. The World on Tuesday certainly educates me about unfamiliar parts of the world.

  3. That’s the area where I was born!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  4. Your composition on this shot is really nice. It shows many layers of elements and the view is great!

  5. It makes such an interesting picture but I hate to think about smog up there! (Well, or anywhere of course, but somehow I naively never thought of your having that big city problem.)

  6. It is a small world, I lived in the Beach for a spell, then moved towards the Scarborough Bluffs area. The GTA offers so many photo-ops. As for the smog, sad, but fact of life. The source for much of it comes from the coal fired plants and incinerators.

  7. Great shot! I like all the silhoutted buildings in the background. Thank you for visiting my blog 🙂

  8. Love the silhouettes of the skyline. I would not expect to see a city so close to the beach.
