Didn't take that picture myself. I found it. But I use a Canon Powershot A75.

Ahh, but thanks for posting it. It is a beaut!!
I have been looking longingly at the Canon Powershots, and am definitely
going to get a Canon in the winter or spring. Canon is definitely the best.

Toronto is looking amazing, even better than it did in March when I was visiting. That Hummingbird Tower is beautiful, the base is a piece of art in itself. Certainly not your average skyscraper.

Toronto has many mega-projects underway worth many billions... the airport redevelopment alone is worth $4.5 Billion. The PORTLANDS project covers 340 hectares, not including parks.

One might even suggest that the explosion of condos west of the Humber near Palace Pier (not included in the pic) is almost a "mega-project" (multiple developers).

Here's a snapshot of some of the larger ones.





Fort York Neighbourhood - 2 towers complete, U/C includes Malibu, sales includes West Harbour City.

Wow, elliot - that is a good compilation. I really like the font - which one did you use? Futura condensed? Excellent.

Nice sun-rise pic.18 Yonge has been topped out and the exterior shouldn't be far behind. It's just slightly shorter then the Pinnacle across the street.
