Weekly Photo Feature #9 – Chester Hill Lookout Winterized Version

Chester Hill Lookout has been in the news a lot lately. Not for the reasons you might think though. This is my Chester Hill Lookout Winterized Version.

Some nefarious activity occurred there over the summer, some other nonsense last year. I won’t go into the details and contribute to the fascination of this place for the wrong reasons. Or even link to the page that shows up when you google it, since that site is trash.

We talk about Chester Hill Lookout because of the views. That’s it.
In talking about it, we might mention the amount of garbage that accumulates there. It has grown in 2020. I’m not sure why. And I don’t know why the city hasn’t placed a garbage can there. What do they expect people to do with their trash if there’s no place to dispose of it. Seems like a no-brainer, but who am I?

I’m a guy that loves going to this place all year round because of the epic view it presents of the city of Toronto. That’s who I am.

This is the first time I’ve shot here during the winter. I went on this day, hoping to see the city blanked in the fresh snow that had fallen over night. But alas, I was too late. The temperate had started to go up by the time I left the house and arrived there, sadly.

I’m not crazy about the light. It was over-cast which usually adds dull lighting. I find it a little more challenging to get a good exposure when it’s like that. White skies are my kryptonite. I don’t mind if the sun isn’t out. I guess I don’t have to worry about blowing out the sky if there isn’t one though. Amirite.

It still wasn’t a total waste I think. I do like this Chester Hill Lookout Winterized Version.

Until next time…
