favourite location, photo friday, autumn at homeLiving so close to Toronto, I’m forever taking pictures of the famous skyline and CN Tower. It’s a stunning view, but as with any big city, there’s not a lot of foliage in the “concrete jungle”. We’ve had some magnificent fall weather these last few days and this has inspired me to drive around town, capturing the splendour of autumn in suburban southern Ontario. Enjoy!

I still couldn’t resist getting a shot of Toronto, from across the water at a local park.
It needed maximum zoom and appears cloudy, but here it is:

  1. Oh Canada! ♥ I have thousands of photos from my visit. That shot of the CN Tower is fabulous, Debbie – the contrast of the color of the water to the skyline is just superb. So elegant. especially with the boat’s pristine white. It is such a vast country and the thing that took my breath away was the space! We got to see quite a bit during our three weeks there and I also got to meet some of my blogger friends – imagine – across the oceans 🙂 The trees are completely fascinating – I love the bare branches just as much as the pretty foliage. I saw the gorgeous weeping willows for the first time, consciously. I was also dazzled by the Marilyn Monroe building and the beauty of the drive across Niagara-on-the-lake and Forks of the Credit. Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos – and hope to meet you next time I visit! ♥ Where I live, we do have seasons – summer, monsoons and winter – it is quite pleasant the year around and we love it. 🙂

    1. Hi, Vidya; I’m glad you enjoyed the photos. That one of the CN Tower was a fluke! I didn’t think it would turn out so well, because I had to set the zoom lens on maximum, but it does look rather “arty”. Meeting online friends is so special and I hope we do get that chance, one day. I didn’t realize you had winter in India. Can’t imagine it gets cold like it does here. Monsoons would be interesting to experience. Thanks for dropping in! 🙂

  2. Love those gorgeous fall colours, Eh, Debbie? Great photos! It is such a picturesque time here in Fall in Ontario, isn’t it? I just love it. Now the leaves have fallen and it’s looking a little drab out there so I’m glad I clicked away taking lots of photos to remember the trees’ finery. I think we’re lucky in Canada to have four such distinct seasons, even if winter wears out its welcome pretty darn fast.

    1. This is a great time of year here in Ontario, but November and crappy weather is coming up. (Actually, we’re having a major downpour today.) Although I’m not fond of winter, everything else here is good and outweighs that discomfort. Still, I’ll be bitching about it all season. Venting releases the displeasure. 🙂

  3. So gorgeous! I traveled north as far as North Carolina last week and hoped to see color. I didn’t see but just a tree here or there and was very disappointed and then on my way home in South Carolina I saw three vivid trees in red, orange and yellow standing together in the middle of green trees. It made my day. I was driving and couldn’t photograph them but I hope to always remember them. I’m back in Florida and love the weather and warmth all year. I only miss the fall color, not the cold!

    1. Welcome to The Den, Jeannie. 🙂 I’m with you about the cold! While we love the fall colours, we know what we’re in for, after that. Florida would be nice to visit then, but I wouldn’t want to be there in the summer. Someone else I know who lives there describes it as “wearing a wool suit in a steam bath”. Thanks for dropping in.

  4. Oh these are beautiful pictures. The home with the willow-that is beautiful and the one blazing red tree-just magical in my books. I have to say I love Spring because I can smell all the new buds and see the bright greens. I love the cherry trees and the blossoms. Autumn is equal in my books because of the colours and the crispness in the air. I couldn’t live where there was only one season. I love the changes too much

    1. That’s my favourite shot too, Birgit. 🙂 It’s right next to a lakeside pathway. Beautiful area! Spring is lovely, except when it rains a lot and makes mud. Dogs and mud are not a happy combination. I could live somewhere where it’s warm all the time because I hate the cold. On the other hand, everything else is so good here, winter is a small price to pay.

  5. Ah, the beauty of the north!!! How I miss the changing of the leaves. I never get to see Fall colors out here in Texas. I miss it so much. Autumn was always my favorite season up north. It still is here because I love the cooler temperatures. But the color is missing. I envy you!

  6. Hi, Debbie the Doglady! Every year at this time I thank northern friends like you for sharing pictures of the changing season with folks like me who are trapped in the deep south. I very much appreciated your slide show of gorgeous colored leaves around Southern Ontario. I also enjoyed the zoom shot of the Toronto skyline. Here in Central Florida we have four seasons: hot, hotter, steam bath wearing a wool suit hot and WOW-OMG! – get me outta here!

    (Please pity me.)

    Thanks again and have a great week, dear friend Debbie!

    1. Hi, Shady; I’m glad you enjoyed the photos. 🙂 Florida must be brutal in the summer, with all that humidity. 😛 “Steam bath wearing a wool suit” – what a perfect word image for that! On the other hand, I’d love to hightail it down there in winter, see how the Snowbirds live. ♫ You Can’t Always Get What You Want ♫ As beautiful as our autumns are, what comes after is truly unpleasant. Perhaps you should pity me! 😉 Thanks for visiting and you have a great week, too.

  7. Beautiful photos Debbie! I miss the brights reds so much! That’s why we planted three Japanese Maple trees in our yard. They turn bright red, and remind me of Indian Summer. You live in a gorgious corner of this world. I particularly liked the skyline photo with the sailboat, even if it doesn’t have any trees.
