Toronto is a great city. I haven't been there in years but loved it, every time!

Phew! Imagine that trip 100 years ago!
....peter:): a hundred years ago... it would take about twelve days to get from Vancouver to Toronto by train Ray... and then another five to get up to Moonbeam...
i know that there was a train to Kapuskasing because Remi Lake was named after a railway worker drowned in it around then...petersmile
A lovely, sparkly night shot!
....peter:): thanks Elizabeth....petersmile

I always love these night pictures. I bet during the day it was a grand view.
....peter:): there much nicer scenes for night shots in Toronto Astrid... this was out close to the airport and it felt like the planes were descending to land about 100 feet above our roomgrin

Fine night scene!
....peter:): thank you Tom....petersmile
I hope the windows were triple glazed Peter.
....peter:): we needed even more than that Chad... it seemed like the jets were landing about 3 miles away... and were only 100 feet above our hotel as they came down....petersmile
You would have to close the curtains to get any sleep with all that light, eh? Not like Remi Lake's light.
....peter:): you have that right eh!!not at all like Remi Lake... it seemed like the jets were landing about 3 miles away Mary... and were only 100 feet above our hotel as they came down....petersmile

Bonjour Peter, que j'aime les photos de nuit, c'est tellement beau!!! Bisou, bon mardi tout doux!
....peter:): merci mille fois Maria-lina... mais ce n'était pas une nuit tranquille
il semblait que les jets atterrissaient à environ 3 miles ... et étaient seulement 100 pieds au-dessus de notre hôtel car ils sont descendus!!!
Bisou et bon mardi tout doux....peter/pierresmile
i imagine it is a cold night out there Peter, but the image is cheerful with the lights
....peter:): it's always nice to be able to photograph a skyline in a big city Ayush... thanks....petersmile
belle nocturne! amitiés
....peter:): merci mile fois jean pierre... amitiés....peter/pierresmile
Oh the skyline of Toronto
Is somethin' you'll get onto
But they say you've got to live there for a while
And if you got the money
You can get yourself a honey
A written guarantee ta make you smile
But it's snowin' in the city
And the streets and brown and gritty
And I know there's pretty girls all over town
But they never seem ta find me
And the one I left behind me
Is the reason that I'll be Alberta bound
....peter:): Thanks for the song Bill...
Toronto is a good place to visit but i could never live there...

the last line of this song reminds me of an Canadian classic...
"Four Strong Winds"
original by Ian Tyson (1978)

second verse...
Think I'll go out to Alberta
Weather's good there in the Fall
Got some friends that I can go to workin' for
Still I wish you'd change your mind
If I asked you one more time
But we've been thru that a hundred times or more!
