Default Looking East from CN Tower

Looking east we see Toronto, Lake Ontario and Oshawa in the far distance.

Default North View

I may as well throw in the view north. The street you see going all the way to the top near the middle is Yonge Street. Its the longest street in the world.

Very cool shots! Amazing the view and how big/urban Toronto is. My mother sometimes talks about her grandfather's farm, how it was outside Toronto and how rural. Where that farm was has been taken over by the big city, which is well beyond it now.

The view from the tower sure brings home how major a city it is.

This is brilliant nighttime photos... I would love to see HDRs from different times of the day from this vantage point.

You'd think it would be easy to shoot through a glass and get great shots. Not so. The people in charge of the CN Tower are idiots when it comes to the needs of the photographer. The small narrow passageway around each of the two observation pods are all painted white which reflects very nicely in all the glass windows. In the night time when the lights from the lower pod shine up on the smaller pod everything becomes green, red, blue or white. Its a nightmare from inside trying to shoot out through all that color. Ive sent a message to the CN Tower website to complain about something so basically wrong. Im sure I wont hear anything back because people that stupid dont have anyones concerns in mind. Here is an example of an untouched shot. The red at the top is actually the white ceiling made red by the lights from below lighting it up and reflecting to the glass. The white stripe running along the bottom is the silver hand rail running around the room just inside the glass. A simple fix would be to paint the white areas a dark blue, black or dark brown and by painting the inside of the railings black. Now they wouldnt reflect into the windows and those going to the tower to take away a nice memory wont be ticked off at someone's stupidity.
