We often take our dog to a special area in the Toronto beaches, called Cherry Beach, where dogs are allowed to roam off leash and play in the water.

Earlier this summer we took Midnight to the beach where she made several dog friends and as you can see from the photo above, had a great time swimming in the lake with her new friends.

I love that I was able to capture her and her pal swimming out into Lake Ontario beneath a fiery sky as the sun set. Lovely. What do you think of this picture?

Earlier this evening we had a severe weather storm here in Toronto … severe enough that there were Tornado warnings for the city and surrounding area (very rare!), funnel clouds and even some Tornado touch downs!

About an hour after the storm began, the sky began to lighten and the dark clouds started to blow away … and this is what was left – the sun setting over the city after a violent storm.

I love how the clouds are reflected in my neighbors front windows. The sky was beautiful and I’m glad that I can show you a tiny piece of my world – after the storm.

A rose with colors like a sunset or sunrise

This rose is called Climbing Westerland.

I don’t think it’s name reflects how truly beautiful this rose really is. It’s located in the back corner of my garden, but as you can see from the color of it’s blooms it’s not a rose that hides in the shadows!

It’s colors are gorgeous – like a sunset or sunrise … unforgettable once you’ve seen one of these roses.

I took this photo of the Toronto Skyline about a year ago while on a Toronto Dinner boat cruise. The sun was just starting to set behind the CN Tower and it was a beautiful sight.

As you can probably tell I applied a sepia effect to the photograph. I also experimented with some of the photos of the skyline in Black and white as well, but I think I like the sepia effect best, next to the natural full color shot of course.
