Stupid swans ruining my shots…

My apartment in Toronto was an unobstructed eastern view of downtown from the 17’th floor. This made for some pretty spectacular sunrises pretty much every morning, but it felt like I hadn’t seen a proper sunset in over a year.

In my new place, we face mostly west, which allows for those sunsets to provide a bit more influence, but there’s still a fair bit of blockage by the trees. This compelled me to start keeping an eye out for good spots that might make for a nice sunset.

There is a tiny outcrop of LaSalle park in Burlington that I checked out as the sun went down. After looking around, it might actually make for a better sunrise vantage point, but I was already there so what the heck, right? There even happened to be a group of swans going to meet up with their buddies.

I took this with my 24-70mm lens, shooting at 1/1000 and f5.6 with an ISO of 100.
