Day break over 16 Mile Creek

We are a few minutes after 8am on Saturday October 26, standing on the Dundas street overpass looking south down 16 Mile Creek. The sun came over the trees about 15 minutes ago, slowly bringing light and life as the birds got going. Mist from the creek rose and a sun haze stretched out across the tree canopy.

Blue Jays vs. Yankees, Bottom of 3rd, Montgomery Pitching

This one was not pretty 😦   Bottom of 3rd and the Toronto Blue Jays already down by 2 runs.  New York was on fire with multiple home runs throughout the game, while the Jays bats were very quiet.  Still, a great day at the ballpark with the family!

Anaeho’omalu Beach Perfect Sunset

Thinking this is my favorite photo from trip to Hawaii. It was our last night; we walked the lagoons behind the hotel and along Anaeho’omalu Beach watching the sun bring end to the day. As the saying goes… picture perfect!

The Multi-Colored Rainbow Eucalyptus Trees of Maui, Hawaii

The Rainbow Eucalyptus trees of Maui are found on the drive to Hana. Like good tourists, we read up on them before heading out, and yes they are there ready to be touched and photographed 🙂 Everything about the color is natural. Annually patches of outer bark are shed, leaving the inner bark exposed. This then darkens to a mix of blue, purple, orange and maroon. It really looks like someone painted the trunks!

30 Minutes To Sunrise Atop Haleakala Crater At 10,000 Ft.

Sweet! We awoke at 2:30am and were in the car by 3am on our way to the peak of Haleakala Crater in Maui. A steep switch back road with no street lights or guardrails, you climb for hours, breaking through the ceiling of clouds, and reaching the main lookout shortly after 5am. Patiently waiting until dawn breaks, we were rewarded with almost an hours’ worth of changing light until finally the sun broke the horizon. This picture, about half hour before sunrise, has the moon and stars still visible, while the early glow of the sun spreads across the clouds (sitting below the horizon).

Sweeping night time view of Toronto’s skyline, as seen from Park Hyatt rooftop lounge

Had the opportunity two weeks ago to view Toronto’s distinct skyline from the rooftop of the Park Hyatt hotel. There is an outdoor lounge perfectly situated looking south along Avenue Road that allows for this panoramic view of the city.

Feeling Moody – The skies over Hong Kong’s skyline

Hong Kong has a dramatic skyline, day or night. On this morning, the skies looked rough, making Hong Kong appear somewhat moody (or hung over after a fun night?).
