Great shot. abolutely stunning and beautiful. Love the contrast of dark and light. great photo.

The foot prints are a testomony to the resolve of Torontonians that dispite weather bellow - 10 degrees still find a way to go out and spend time in the beautiful parks there.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful view.

Absolutely amazing.

Where are the dog-walkers?

Lovely shot on yet another slightly misty, unseasonably warm day - I feel rested just looking at it, and the bench is most inviting.

Trees have such beautiful silhouettes!

This is a fun contrast to yesterday's shot of the bike shop that is across from this park!

Beautiful picture. Great framing and deep, deep focus. I can't tell whether it's b&w or color on a really grey day.

Genial foto y fantástica composición, realmente buena.

This looks beautiful! Is it a monochrome? Or is the sun dazzling?
Everything looks so clear.

This reminded me of a poorer, but similar photo I took at a bird sanctuary:

I love trees in winter. So "pictureable"... =)

I like the way the black and white really gives the feel of Canada in mid-winter.

Also, this shot makes it look like you're the last person on earth. :)

I like the feeling of solitude and how there's only black and white in the scenery.

Beautiful. It makes me think; modern-day Ansel Adams photograph. Just the kind of peaceful, serene I need today.

Posted by Alyssa at February 8, 2005 10:02 AM

that's postcard material!! great shot. black trees are great

Posted by mariel at February 8, 2005 11:50 AM

Yes.. The idea is - staring in space and feeling like no city found around.
And only footsteps... Like a sea that is gone

i'm from the desert and don't get to see "real winter"...thanks for providing it! and i's a nice nod to ansel adams

Great shot. The monochrome suits the scenery perfectly, it portrays the feeling of solitude.

Posted by chek at February 8, 2005 12:36 PM

This is amazing and real!!! For all of those who don't live in Toronto, do not think that this is the country side or an abandoned park in the middle of nowhere...This is just DT and we all walk our dogs there everyday.

Posted by Fer at February 8, 2005 01:02 PM

Peacfull, someplace I want to be right now.

Posted by Mojoey at February 8, 2005 01:52 PM

Makes winter not so bad after all.

Posted by Brenda at February 8, 2005 02:47 PM

Classic. Reminds of old B&W 1950's photos of Paris.

Posted by qubik at February 8, 2005 06:34 PM

NICE SHOOTIN!!! I look forward to the snow blanketing the landscape once again. I want to know if you work with DV at all? I'm a film maker always looking for a good eye to convey the images I create. I've got a couple of shorts on the go and plans for a feature. Let me know.

wow, this is really cool, reminds me of the morton aboritum (sp?) in chicago durring winter, my school friends and I had a snowball fight at.

very nice, i agree with a previous comment, this is truely postcard material.

(which reminds me, i should post morton aboritum photos on my own photoblog...)

Posted by Hugh at February 8, 2005 07:14 PM

Very relaxing view, and great shot!

Posted by Arezou at February 8, 2005 08:32 PM

not a soul about, but you. great shot.

Posted by paul at February 8, 2005 09:07 PM

I wasn't going to comment because I have a lack of words. Wow, the gray/black contrast is wonderful... this should be in your "gallery" if you ever have one.

Posted by Lorin Halpert at February 8, 2005 09:43 PM

Oh wow. This is a photograph that I wish I had taken -- definitely frame-worthy, I wouldn't be surprised if this ends up on an album cover (or magazine cover). . .

Posted by kandi at February 9, 2005 12:54 AM

Empty benches always look so forlorn. Great photograph, did you edit it with photoshop?

Posted by Will at February 9, 2005 02:38 PM

Be proud of that one!
