2017-11-04  RAINBOWS AT THE FALLS

Capturing a rainbow at the falls is relatively easy.  The bright sun mixed with water dust creates the rainbows over the bay of the Niagara River, giving more excitement to that fantastic nature spectacle.

Acrobatic performances, great music, and singing, choreographic masterpieces, all come to an end. The team builds a circle and congratulates to the audience. The people cheer and acclaim for this complete synthesis of art. Cirque du Soleil presents itself again as the top performing circus show in the world.

2017-08-13  FOG AT THE FALLS

One of the many spectacles at the Niagara Falls. The origin of this water fog is the sheer power and size of the falling water masses. Before my visit I underestimated the falls a bit, thinking they may be a bit overhyped, as I have seen this with some sights already. But the opposite is true, great and gorgeous. There are two kinds of falls, a big water valley and a great view from the Canadian side. And you will get wet, sometimes. 🙂

2017-07-17  SUN IS BREAKING THROUGH THE TREES IN CANADA

The sheer size of these unbelievable big lakes south of Algonquin Park, Ontario, reminded you more of the open sea instead of lakes. We took an afternoon tour with a rented motor boat, near the evening we started going back to the rental station, where we had some difficulties finding the right waterway back between the lakes, because from our distance all looked nearly the same. 🙂 There I took some photos with the sinking sun breaking through the trees and shimmering on the water.

2017-05-29  TORONTO FROM MY HOTEL ROOM

This photo was the view from my hotel room in Toronto, cool, eh? The first thing before I unpacked my suitcase was to take an HDR shot of this modern building. I like the placement of the elements of the white building blocks. A good contrast to the gray background gives a sculptural, plastic look. I had to photograph through window glass, which I try to avoid, but the window was clean, so I gave it a try, and it worked out not so bad. 🙂

2017-05-22  TRAIN LIKE IN A WESTERN

In my childhood days, the westerns were my favorites; I liked John Wayne, Burt Lancaster, and Robert Mitchum. This train in Huntsville, Canada with the train driver reminded me of these movies, also the railway station where the train took off, had that flair. I think I should go now and have a look if Netflix has “Rio Bravo”  🙂

2017-05-19  CN TOWER IN TORONTO BY NIGHT

At my tripod “excursion” on the “swimming pool – rooftop” of the Toronto Radisson Blue hotel, I caught this night shot of the CN Tower. Beside of some water showers, I got on my back and feet, from people jumping into the pool,  🙂  it was a great shooting experience where I shot some night photos of Toronto. Since there was a second photographer with the same intention in mind, I had to share some space, but it was enough room and time to get what we wanted. 🙂

2017-04-21  BUTTERFLY IN THE CIRCUS

In Toronto, I used the opportunity to watch Cirque Du Soleil in its hometown. They organized parking well; we had to walk about 10 minutes then came the circus area with the tent. The size was similar to other locations where I have seen the Cirque, but the performance Luzia was the most entertaining I have seen so far.

2017-03-23 HIGH TECH CITY TORONTO

During this photo session, I had to look after the swimming pool behind me, that I don’t get too wet, because of the splashes. The roof top terrace had that pool in the middle, with high activity of swimmers and jumpers, even in the night  🙂 . The good thing was, that I could place the tripod, and it wasn’t a problem for any of the guests.

2017-02-18 FOOD COURT IN TORONTO

In the early afternoon, I was starving, I had breakfast at about 9 am, was walking and shooting the whole day, so it was time to look after some food. In downtown Toronto, we found this food court, where I couldn’t resist to take a big portion of sushi.  🙂 … especially more healthy than most of the burgers and pizzas.
