    A few days ago I braved the freezing cold temperatures (-24C with the windchill) to take some pictures along the Toronto waterfront:

    Nice pictures Antarctican! 3 and 5 are the best for me.

    Looks like you have about the same weather as I do. I've been using it as an excuse not to go outside... but I should probably go out there and snap some shots.

    Like the way the ice had frozen up the trees and the birds can't leave out the birds

    The 1st life guard station is my favorite,I love the colour of the sky.The frozen trees are excellent but I would love to see a full frame of those trees with ice crawling up from the bottom.The skyline view is also excellent and is that the famous rotating cafe I see in the backround?Im not to sure if I like or dislike the branches that are sicking out of that shot,I dont know why though.It would be nice to see a picture of the town looking out from the rotating cafe(if thats what it is).Maybe at sun set or something.Maybe that could be your next mission?

    [​IMG] Yep, might as well get out there! Briefly... (It was so cold, I couldn't take it for very long. So much for my screenname, eh?)
    [​IMG] <---- ("hide", get it?)

    [​IMG] Can't say I do. Hmmm, I'm intrigued!

    [​IMG] Thank you oCyrus!

    [​IMG] Had me going there, EB!


    Thanks all for your comments!
