A Photographic Guide to Prince of Wales Park

I hope you’ve enjoyed my Photographic Guide to Colonel Sam Smith Park and Photographic Guide to Humber Bay Park so far.

 When bigger picture landscapes just don’t cut it, I like to photograph the details of nature as well. Apart from my macro photos, I also love creating various abstract photos that create a sense of calmness when looking at them. That’s what I hope to achieve with my #abstractionseriesbytaku. The effects in these photos are all achieved in-camera and not in Photoshop, although all editing has been done within Lightroom. . Would you like to see more of this series too? .

 Let it snow...Looking down from 800m above sea level with snow in the foreground and fall colours peaking through the low-laying clouds. . The peak of Montaigne des Erables is the tallest in the park, and offers some stunning views like this. That white line you see cutting through the yellow foliage? That’s the road the school bus drives down picking passengers up and dropping them off at various points throughout the park. .

 Best seat in the park. . I started watching Memories of Alhambra on @netflixca and ended up watching four episodes in a couple days. It’s a Korean show (with English subs) revolving around a missing programmer who created an AR game that you can play in real life as soon as you wear these special contact lenses. . What disappointed me most is that Netflix is only releasing one new episode a week for this series! Way to test my patience, Netflix! . #ig_sunrisesunset #nikon_canada #nikonz7 #longexposures #longexposureshots #sunrise_sunset_photogroup #torontosunriseseriesbytaku #moody_captures #cityscape #longexpoelite #netflix #torontoartist #torontoblogger #canadianogger #bloggerstyle #bloggerlife #lightroommasters #mycntower #winterwonderland #blogger #wethenorth #torontoclx #6ixwalks #imagesofcanada #imagesoftoronto
 This funnel cloud-like formation immediately caught my attention even though I have no clue what it is. What could have this been? .

 While you will no doubt see many photos of snowstorms in the city this winter, I will do my best to capture the other side of winter—the side that warms you up, soothes you, and makes you appreciate the beauty this season has to offer. .

 Sometimes the Toronto skyline takes a back seat to Mother Nature. I walked by this tree all the time but it wasn’t until that morning when I took this photo that I realized how great a subject it could be as well. . @nikoncanada Z 7, 30 sec., ISO64, 35mm f/1.8 S lens . #nikon_canada #nikonglobal #ig_sunrisesunset #longexposures #lakeshoreliving #longexposureshots #sunrise_sunset_photogroup #torontosunriseseriesbytaku #mothernature #ig_nature #blogto #tdot_shots #curiocityto #sharecangeo #neverstopexploring #mycntower #torontoblogger #torontoartist #canadianbloggers #bloggersyle #bloggerlife #earthshotz #6ixwalks #nikonz7 #mirrorlessreinvented
