Toronto: December 6, 2015; Toronto skyline from the west, evening

I took these shots from the Bathurst St. Bridge, just south of Front on Friday evening.  It turns out that standing on a bridge and facing down or off into the distance freaks me out a bit.  I had the inkling it did when I crossed the Brooklyn Bridge a few years ago, and I felt it in Austin.  Probably worse Friday night. It's not a logical feeling; it's not because I think I'm unsafe--because I don't, just something about standing there with a tripod....

Watching trains coming towards me, and then feeling the bridge shake created a pit in my stomach, so I took some quick shots and left.

I guess I hadn't paid attention, but the CN Tower puts on quite a light show.  Check out the changing colours and patterns below.
