    well, the top of the CN Tower anyway. These were taken during my company XMAS party on December 15th. Thanks for looking.

    Nice images. I haven't been up the tower since sometime in the early 80's thanks for refreshing my memory. Great place to have a christmas party!!

    That view through the glass bottom of this tower gives me vertigo any time I see a photo taken through it (and I ONLY and EXCLUSIVELY know that view from no where else but TPF :biggrin: ).

    And I see that also in Canada the Christmas lights are very colourful. No wonder that English lady with whom I'd been to the Christmas markets in Bremen and Hamburg, respectively, felt like commenting on our primarily just white lights everywhere... ;)

    Wonderfully clear and sharp zoomed-in views from up there, they are so good that the bit of reflection on the glass does not distract me at all. No worries.

    Does the sky look that orange, given a good cloud cover?

    thanks for the comments. the venue was the major reason as to why I decided to go the the party in the first place. I've always enjoyed the view from the top of the tower, but this was my first time up there at night... it was breathtaking for sure

    Corinna, the sky really was quite orange due to the majority of the city street lights giving off an orange hue. The only ps'ing I did was in adjusting the hilights and some sharpening.

    Nice photos! In those city shots Toronto looks like a scene out of Bladerunner. Very futuristic.

    wow... thanks for the comments everyone. Spacenut, it's a mere 8 hours and 42 minutes (according to mapquest) from your hometown to mine... and then for a mere $25.99 CDN plus taxes of course you too can experience the view. I was fortunate in that I didn't have to pay a cent, but really, I think that it's worth it.
