Toronto Sky

Time for some lovely guest photos of the Toronto Sky above what has been claimed to be the longest street in the world, namely Yonge Street (although like most things the claim is debatable), taken by my dear friend Claude near to where she lives. And taken just before Christmas, so a step away from the everyday in both time and place. I do like those fluffy clouds and the street features. Thanks Claude, it's very nice to see a little bit of what you see.

Photos by and copyright of Claude Prévost, taken with her Canon Sure Shot BF



Some more Toronto scenes would be good, if and when my "Canadian Agent" is ready to send them.

  1. There was something about these, I wasn't sure what, but now I think it is that the natural colour gives a rather sepia like effect. Looks rather dreamy to me.

  2. Your wish is almost my command .... almost. I wonder what fate awaits me for having not carried out what was demanded of me!!!

    There may be a clumsy pic coming sometime soon so you'll have to make do with one from the Daily Mail.

  3. I am presuming that is a comment responding to a comment I made at your place "Clumsy". It may confuse people. It is my job to confuse people here.

  6. WOW! I feel I have arrived in the world. You're so kind! You did a wonderful job presenting my first efforts at Sky Photography. I'm sharing the post with Facebook.

    Thank you for your hospitality!

  7. I'm probably going to confuse again but Clumsy has returned to my place.

    Hope you're pleased, Don

  9. Lovely shots - I can almost sense the clouds scudding by.

  10. They are beautiful, I love the clouds.

    Thank you for sharing Claude's sky views with us :-)

    I will patiently await some more...

  11. Dear Child of the Elephant (Elephant's Child), I notice your link with comments does not lead to your blog (at least not for me as not signed up to Google+), so for the benefit of others here, they can find your excellent blog at

  12. These are lovely skyline pictures of a city that was my home town in early years. Nice work, Claude.

  13. ps: I don't know if Yonge St. is the longest street but outside of towns it's called Hwy 11 but in every town it passes through it's always called Yonge St.

  14. Thank you so much. Sadly, having signed up to Google Plus I don't seem to be able to opt out. The link is still there on my profile (if you can get to it?) but it takes some work.

  15. Ah yes, EC, I can dig into the link via "About". You should be able to get off Google+ via the overall Google account settings, as I am pretty sure I did that a while ago, but it took a bit of digging around if I am recalling correctly (and my recall is not always correct :) )

  16. Thanks to everyone. I'm so surprised that the first Sky Photos I've taken in my life are judged acceptable.

    They do look good on the Don's blog. Scotland is very hospitable to the Toronto clouds. I'll take some more photos when they return home.

  17. Actually I would appreciate your clouds scudding off back home now Claude, as we have plenty of our own here today. But clouds tend to scud Eastwards from here, not Westwards, but I suppose they'll get right round to you again eventually.

  18. And your photos don't have to be of clouds Claude. Any opportunities for a Toronto Tree Time view around you? Or whatever you see that you wish to show.

  19. Claude, that second one is gorgeous. :)

  20. I'll be looking at trees, Sir Don, and see what happens. Thank for the suggestion.
