Wow... That's not something you see every day. Nice.
I remember that sunset, it was Thursday night. This is an amazing photo. You're lucky you were in such a perfect place for it. I was downtown during that time and didn't even bother shooting the lightning.
Do you carry your whole kit with you all the time? I'm surprised you had your tripod and Pclix.
Wow! Simply gorgeous photo.
How big are the chances to see such a sky, the colours, the lightning? And you had your camera.
Thanks for the wallpaper size!!!
Wow, not a very common combination of two beautiful things. The sky color makes it look like it's really hot where the lightning is coming from.
A great shot of an unreal-like scene. The symmetry of the three lightning strikes is astonisning.
I've never seen lightning like this. Really amazing!
I am ...completely speechless. Wow.
I really love the first one...the colors, the water and it's reflection and everything just looks great...
I don't know what to say really. This is stunning!
Would have been an awesome shot, even without the lightning! Great work.
Absolutely amazing colours! Have never seen a lightning in that form. Bravo!
WOW. This is amazing! What good luck you had capturing this. Stunning, vivid colors and just enough of the lightning showing up, brilliant! And great composition. This image is totally made out of win.
This is one of my favorites from your pics! well done.
Well done! That's amazing. I've never even seen anything like that, let alone captured it.
Glad to know it took 600 shots to get it – my lightning attempts have been unsuccessful. I was told you need a light trigger or something like that... or a lot of shots I guess. :P
Another stunning shot Sam
MMMMMmmmmmmmmm! That`s really something!
Great shots! Amazing and so beautiful!!!
A great photo, which is now my desktop wallpaper. Cheers from Stuart in South Africa.
Great ligthning, and the sky..wow
Amazing! What settings were your camera on to get that much dynamic range (like in the trees and such) and keep everything in focus?
Absolutely stunning! A little hard work and patience often pays off.
Every day, the first thing I do when I turn on my computer is look at your page. It's shots like this that keep me coming back. Brilliant...well done!
OMG! You just made my day Sam!
These shots are stunning Sam!!!
Ansel Adams would be proud.
I was totally awed when I saw the photo. Colors are superb. Obviously lightning looks great.
Superb post Sam.
WOW. This is why i keep coming back. Your pictures are usually great but this one is magnificent.
very very stunning. You probablly the only one who “made” toronto like this.
Absolutely fantastic photos. The atmosphere and the reflections ... brilliant !
Well first off - thank you very much for sharing this 1 in 600 with us. It is a truly remarkable shot! The play of colour dark vs light leaves me speechless.
And yes - this photo does make a brilliant desktop. I just had to play with the bringing out the light a little more and size it.
Simply the best!! Thanks!
Wow, simply amazing. I LOVE it on my desktop. Thank you so very much.
BTW, be ready for lots of hits. On front page at www.reddit.com
Madness! Sharp, inspirational and very interesting pictures.
Holy damn shit.. this is just amazing!! the light the colors the lightning... Great stuff!
This is the reason your site is set as my homepage.
Makes every other site I visit pale in comparison.
your colours are absolutely stunning
Wow. Just wow. This one goes into my wallpaper rotation, no doubt about it.
ARGH! I just got to Toronto last night after driving all day - long after sunset... If only I had gotten an earlier start I would have gotten to see this!
Beautiful. I love the blue in the first one.
Awesome, in the truest sense of the word. Well done and great timing!
The photo would be spectacular even without the lightning. The colours are sensational.
Looks like your Pclix was a good investment, and well worth carrying with you all the time :)
Whoa... fantastic! On my desktop now, thanks for the wallpaper size :-)
wow sam... that's unreal. love the colours
Totally friggin' unbelievable.
I have stood in that spot and admired many different skies there in all kinds of weather. But I must admit, I have NEVER seen a sky there like that before. One of your best - thank you for this.
Absolutely stunning, best photo I have seen in a while, anywhere, Sam.
Great shot! Very impressive.
My friend shared a link to this with me and I felt like I had to comment, because it blew my mind.
This is gorgeous.
Awesome .. guess u gotta go taking photos with Nilou from now on ;)
WOW. It is a stunning picture.
blown away here!
How you get all the colours in the rainbow in one frame is beyond me?!
WOW! Thanks for this great shot! You make people, who live in GTA and don't, viewing the city in a different way. Do you mind to share what post-camera processes you have done?
I've been amazed by some of your photos! I'm jealous! Of your talent and your lense. I've seen in comments your use of an L series. Is that strictly for Cannon? If not what is the equivilant for a Nikon? I need to upgrade my camera and buy a couple of wonderful lenses. The colors and the perfect contrast you pick up in your photos. It's like what the human eye is seeing. Even if there wasn't lightening in this picture I'd still be amazed just from the perfect tones and contrast!
I've been following your blog for years and this is my first comment. When I saw this picture I just had to say something! That is some awesome dedication (and a dash of luck), Sam! I've always enjoyed your views of the GTA, makes me look at things differently everytime I'm in the city!
You've always been an inspiration to me. Keep up the amazing work!
Absolutely Amazing!! Love it.
nice one it is just awesome :) tanx for this nice view
WOOOOOOOOW! Seriously fantastic!
That should be on the cover of national geographic....How the F*** are you doing it? :)
A M A Z I N G
Simply amazing! I found my new desktop wallpaper. I hope I can someday take a photo with that much skill and impact...
The colors in these are beautiful.
You really nailed that one! Great photo in every aspect. thank you.
Speechless.. that is soo beautiful ..
Love ur work
This is really great! Is there any chance of you posting a 2560 x 1600 resolution image? Thanks!
I envy you having the gadgets that you do. I have been thinkin of investing on a SLR since some time now. The colours seem so vibrant, it got me wondering is is an HD shot? I have come across situations where the scene is so beautiful t the human eye, but I fail to capture it in its elegance when I look thru a camera! How can I come close to achieving it without having to fiddle with photoshop?
You captured an amazing shot, every time I have hit this bridge there is nothing I can make for a good shot. Congratulations.
I am speechless. That is an amazing photograph.
An amazing image, I don't think you could of planned to be in a better spot :)
so cool, i cant believe thats center island
