Nach Kanada bin ich schon immer gern gereist. Während der vergangenen zehn Jahre war ich viermal dort, dreimal davon im Osten (Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa). In Kanada kommt man leicht rum, es gibt beeindruckende Natur, lockere und gastfreundliche Menschen. Ein paar Gründe dafür, dass ich bald selbst dort leben werde!
Nice view from CN tower down to snow covered Toronto in March 2016.
Many Canadian cities are labled with huge letters somewhere in there downtown area. Not, that this city wouldn't have any other remarkable landmarks...
Frozen lakes and rivers at Toronto Islands, where I hardly met any person during a day-long walk.
Photographed from Ward Island. I spent 5 hours walking around just to wait for the sun set. Almost missed the last ferry back.
Day and Night
For an interesting picture it is always worth to leave your camera standing at exactly the same spot for 3 hours...
In March 2016 I visited Niagara Falls for one day and was impressed by their appearance. Not so much impressed I was by the city itself, which more looked like an outdoor casino.
Niagara Falls in Winter
Everything close to the falls get's covered in ice
Observation deck of CN Tower
That's a very strange town... can't get any more touristy than that. Casinos and hotels in every corner. Luckily, not so much tourism during the winter.
That's a view I'd never seen before... when seing pictures of Niagara Falls, their original context ist usually missed - now I know why.
Freezing weather in February 2015
Park Jean Drapeau, Montreal
Park Jean Drapeau
Venue of the legendary Hypthermic Half Marathon
That was definitely my hardest half marathon - wind chill temperatures at -25 to -30 degrees and 100% snow coverage on the streets...
Finished the half marathon at freezing temperatures in about 1hr 55min. Pretty good for those conditions.
Overlooking Rideo River
View from Ottawa/Ontario to Gatineau, Quebec - seperated by Rideau River. Picture taken in January 2018.
Rideau Canal and Rideau River
20cm thick ice, but still not enough to open this year's skating season
Rideau Canal, Ottawa
The world's longest ice skating rink, roughly 8km in full lenght!
