A walk by Lake Ontario offers an opportunity to pause and stare into the distance: to watch the ripples on the water and crunch across the gravel/shingle on the shore. In the distance there is the Toronto skyline which is dominated by the CN Tower.

The scene is peaceful; the day already warm although a breeze coming off the water makes it a pleasant place to be.

I decided to practise my photography and try a couple of artistic shots.

The light is very bright and even with sunglasses, I find myself squinting. It is almost impossible to see the scene through the camera viewer, so I aim in the general direction and hope for the best! With high U.V. readings, even on cloudy days; it is all too easy to get sunburn ~ remember to apply sunscreen before venturing outdoors.
