A Winter Walk at Harbourfront Toronto…Or Harbour-frozen Pictures!

Standard

I decided to go on a walk a week or so ago despite the cold temperature outside and the logic of why would I want to do such a thing in the midst of winter. Randomly, ended up at Harbourfront eventually and opted to take some pictures of Toronto’s Waterfront. Truthfully, there is quite a lot of construction happening along Queen’s Quay so I had to manoeuvre my way on the streets and lack of sidewalk to take a closer a look at the frozen version of Lake Ontario and I was quite happy with the effort! Not only did I get some cool shots, I also got a slight workout in the process. Proud to say I didn’t slip or fall once and my face didn’t freeze…well right away at least.

This was taken by the Spadina Wavedeck. It was awesome to see the visible chunks of ice with that haunting sky in the background that was good camera filtering!

HTO Park West in the summertime usually has kayakers and people enjoying the sand or laying in the sun. Winter time, not so much!

Along the pier, once you look past the ice and snow its really calm sunset.

The Natrel Skating Rink is one the coolest skating spots in Toronto. Especially, when you consider that you get to take in the view of the Waterfront while you’re skating.

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words and I feel this one speaks volumes. This picture perfectly describes what Toronto has to offer its citizens and anyone visiting us in just 3 words… More Than Enough!

Regards,

Waynie

Soca on Ice Takes Over Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre

Standard

It’s never too cold for SOCA MUSIC! Last month was proof of that as hundreds of people braved the frigid weather to take part in the 4th edition of ‘Soca on Ice’.

Since it’s inception in 2011, as a part of Harbourfront Centre’s DJ Skate Nights, this event has been a complete success bringing together people of all ages and backgrounds who want to feel the Power of Soca delivered by Dr. Jay, ‘De Soca Prince’ who has been a groundbreaking ambassador for soca music not only in Canada but worldwide.

It was a night to enjoy some nice island vibes, take a dance on the ice and come alive as people wave their rags and flags and show their national colours!

In case you weren’t able to attend or if you did attend and want to relive it here are a few video recaps of the night when Soca ‘Tun Ova’ the Waterfront!
