In yesterday's photo I had a close up of some of the ducks spending their winter (or at least the beginning of it) in the Toronto Harbour after having commuted south from places colder than Toronto. This photo, taken from out at the end of Bathurst Quay shows just how many of these little feathered friends have made themselves at home off the city's shores.
With my telephoto lens, this image has really been flattened out, with the old (and long shut down) stack of the Hearn Coal Generating Station (far right) standing tall and steam/smoke free in the dead cold. The new portlands gas-fired plant that was built (quietly) about a year ago certainly stands out in the cold with its plume of steam. The industrial port is a long way from the central waterfront (part of which is showing in the left of the image). From this angle Toronto's waterfront really looks quite desolate but in reality it has gotten to be very nice -- even in winter.
