Nathan Phillips Square is situated right in front of the Toronto City Hall (very much like a courtyard). The Square hosts a variety of art and holiday exhibits throughout the year including the Festival of Lights in the winter. By the beginning of December the front courtyard is turned into a public skating ring. Shooting at night forces you to use long exposures and thought this would be a great opportunity to focus on the movement of the skaters. I shot a lot of images but this particular one, with the motionless skater on their knees and the movement around them was the shot that made it to the top of the pile for today’s post.
