jennifer squires: toronto photographs

Speaking of quieter times, these photographs of Lake Ontario taken by photographer Jennifer Squires are going to be my zen moments for today. During a whirlwind trip to Toronto, Jennifer decided to start and end her day on the shores of Lake Ontario, taking photographs. Unsure of whether or not her trip was a good idea, Jennifer found herself sitting on the dock above when a huge rainbow appeared across the sky. It seemed like a sign that her trip was meant to happen and she ended up returning home with some beautiful photographs. I love the calming quality Jennifer’s work always has, her work always puts me at ease. You can check out more of her work, and pick up these newer pieces, right here. xo, grace


You’re right, these are gorgeous. I’ve never seen Lake Ontario looking so beautiful and serene.


This is lovely. I lived for two years in Toronto, and I have the most wonderful memories of that time!


These are so serene. It’s like an instant calm. Great way to start the weekend. Thank you!

Gorgeous! Makes my heart hurt for home, and the summers of my childhood. I spent on endless hours in these waters! Fantastic job Jennifer. I went to your website and really enjoyed your beautiful shot of the Humber Bridge, and your other great lake shots!


I love the first image! It gives a wonderful sense of peace. Beautiful!


Beautiful simplicity. I can’t decide between the first and the last image, both are great!


I grew up in The Beaches and these remind me of home, thank you for posting them! I’m currently living in Melbourne and would love to have these on my wall!


Great to see some photography featured on this site. I sometimes feel that photography is a little neglected here.

The top photo is gorgeous. Gotta love long exposures of flowing water…


Toronto has never looked so tranquil. I often forget, until seeing pictures like these, about how unique it is to have a capital city right next to a lake.
