Beautiful picture, Shapoor, did you make it yourself?

Do the people ice skate when the lake is frozen like this btw, I wonder!?

^ No, I've put a link to the photographer's page below the image. Yes people do ice skate and play ice hockey on Lake Ontario at winter.

Can you really skate on the frozen lake?

Isn't that dangerous?

As usual, Toronto's skyline is just .

It is not dangerous as long as the ice is thick enough. It usually just freezes close to the shore. It depends how the water freezes whether you can skate on it or not. If the water was turbulent when it froze, the surface is too rough. If the water was placid, then you can!

Pretty. I wish they would stick some big buildings around the CN Tower.

Wow that's an amazing pic. I can see the Portuguese Church that's right next to the Portuguese school I used to go.

I'm guessing it was taken from the Olympic Tower, which has a spectacular view! Breathtaking photo!

OOps! Sorry I was looking at it wrongly! Of course it is taken from the top of Mount Royal. I have a horrible sense of direction!

lol no. The guy who took that pic had to be located North-East of Mount Royal. You see that viaduct? That means he was North of Rosemont Street.

edit: Oh shit. Now I know from where he took it from. Look that the top right of the pic. You'll see from where he took it lol
