The "fire" comes from the sodium street lamps of Oshawa, and the blue light from my bluish rechargeable flashlight. This kind of shot is not a one-time shoot but a cumulative effort of taking about twenty shots under slightly different conditions, an experiment each time. The temperature was below freezing in the air, but because Lake Ontario has a warming effect on the land in winter, there was virtually no snow.

I say the same for your Nathan Phillips Square panorama - could be a contest winner! (a great interior pan of Debbie's Cafe and Boutique, by the way). Indy

The islands are called Haida Gwaii.

Hope you get to visit.

Good luck in the contest!

Thank you, Itallica, for the correction and the good wishes. My family hasn't yet seen the beauty of Haida Gwaii, though my wife was raised on an island on the other side of the ocean. Big ocean! Best regards, Indy
