The purpose of this challenge is choose a location near your home and take several pictures every month. The idea is to capture all the changes that occur over the year – the seasons, the weather, and different times of the day.
This sounded like exactly the kind of thing I love to do. Even though I was somewhat behind everyone else who embraced this challenge, I hurried out this afternoon to photograph the Scarborough Bluffs at the east end of Toronto.
Today was a beautiful sunny day with temperatures hovering around 0C. We’ve had frigid temperatures the past couple of weeks between -10C and -15C with the windchill. In comparison, today felt like a spring day.
Lake Ontario was open and ice-free, but inside the harbour, there was a layer of ice.
Many piers were empty with most boats in dry dock.
Although it was 2:30 and still early in the afternoon when I arrived, it was very quiet at the waterfront with only a handful of people out walking around. It never ceases to amaze me how low the sun is in the sky during the winter months.
I’m looking forward to revisiting the Bluffs Marina every month this year and capturing its changing moods.
