Winter in High Park Toronto

One Christmas day, first snow in Toronto. Getting up early in the morning for a winter wonderland photoshoot at High Park, Toronto. Good timing: lockdown and holidays, more ducks than people.

An overcast day, the photos are more like in black and white – contrasting with the vibrant colours of Fall or with the bright greens of Summer.

Winter in High Park photos and quotes.

Winter in High Park

“There’s just something beautiful about walking on snow that nobody else has walked on. It makes you believe you’re special.” – Carol Rifka Brunt, “Tell the Wolves I’m Home”

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, ‘Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.'” –  Lewis Carroll

Winter trees

“‘Hear! hear!’ screamed the jay from a neighboring tree, where I had heard a tittering for some time, ‘winter has a concentrated and nutty kernel, if you know where to look for it.'” – Henry David Thoreau
