Natural landscapes: the perfect morning reflection


Grenadier Pond takes up 40 of this municipal park’s 400 acres. It’s peaceful enough to be a great place to see wildlife, as I did during my visit. This view particularly attracted me, with the strong diagonal lines and contrast between the bright right half and the shadowed left edge.
The park, given to the city of Toronto in 1873 by retired architect, engineer and land surveyor John George Howard, includes a nature centre, a small zoo, cafe and extensive gardens. It’s truly a lovely oasis in Canada’s largest city.
