Many residents of Toronto don't recognize this 360 degree view of the city. The reason is that two of Toronto's most famous landmarks are missing from it -- the CN Tower and the Skydome. The reason, of course is the picture was taken from the observation deck of the CN Tower.
This panorama was very hard to make. I took it too late in the day so the sun interferes too much to the west. In addition, you have to shoot through windows and move around to get the view, so there is bad parallax.
The result however is a picture unlike any other of Toronto, showing downtown, the Island, the waterfront and more all in one interesting photo.

An earlier CN Tower, taken before the trees have turned green. There is a fire in Scarborough. Made with Panorama Factory, and on film with a slightly wider lens.
Interestingly enough, fellow photograph Declan McCullah took a photograph of me taking this photo!

Here's a shot of the Toronto skyline at night. This shot, a 200 degree view from the top of 99 Queen's Quay, was hard because the film lab didn't understand night shots and cut the negatives in the middle. I had to play some repair games.

Fall colour over Minden, Ontario

A lake north of Minden, perhaps Mountain Lake

A shot of Niagara Falls in winter. This shot also makes sense in black and white, or cropped to just the falls zone, which is how I used to have it up.

A flawed shot of Niagara falls from the air. Stitching from a fast moving aircraft is very hard, and it's also easy to make mistakes when doing it quickly by hand. That doesn't stop this one from being interesting -- and there is a nice rectangle in the middle which is suitable for printing, too.

Another shot with a few flaws, from the Ontario side capturing more of the towns.

Looking straight down on the falls.

In winter, Nathan Phillips square, in front of Toronto City Hall, is a popular skating rink. On a cloudy night in Christmas week, many are out skating.

While this is a low-res shot taken with the digital camera, many from Ottawa still ask for copies of it, so I have put it here. It's from the Peace Tower, taken in March of 1999 after my stepbrother's wedding in the Parliament reading room. This shot also had the windows and parallax problems of the CN Tower shot.
