Victoria Day Festivity in Toronto. Blue Hour

We had a happy Victoria Day on Monday with splendid summer weather and with delightful firework festivity at night. And I had quite a festive rooftop photo-session, capturing all the sparkling colourful downtown and fireworks at Ashbrdge's Bay.

It all started with the magic blue hour, which got deeper and deeper with each volley of fireworks - you'll see it next :-)

    Beautiful nightscape. The hours is definitely one of the favorite hours to shoot into the city because of the contrast. Here you have beautiful detail of the fireworks. A wide perspective really showcase the scale of the city too.
