Here is what I learned from trying to take a picture of a Toronto sunset this week:
1) In a city of skyscrapers and 30-story condos, there is no horizon line to shoot.
2) Thanks to the G20, it’s basically impossible to get to the top floor of a public building to find a horizon line.
3) On an especially smoggy day, there’s really no sun to be seen at all.
That said, I did my best, and took this photo of busy downtown strip Queen Street West at 9:02 pm EST. As you can probably tell from the scary, scary sky, there was a massive thunderstorm about 20 minutes later.
Or we could just pretend I took this pic instead. (Which was taken by the much more talented Medmoiselle T) Now that is a sunset!
