Pretty pictures of Toronto covered in snow

Posted by Derek Flack / February 8, 2013

Snowstorm toronto February 2013Don't freak out! There's a little snow on the ground, and more on the way. At once an occasion for skipping school/work and getting wet feet, the good old fashioned snowstorm is also very picture-friendly. Let's not make it more complicated than that. What else is there to say? Trust me, you don't want to read my poetry — it's tinged with regret, sentimentality, and Wallace Stevens rip-offs.

Just look at the pics, ok? Also, for more like this be sure to follow blogTO on Instagram. Lead photo by francislm.

Nice. Ski-pole sled/stroller guy is pretty awesome.

Yay. Crappy photos with "vintage" digital filter applied in a hopeless attempt to make them artistic or interesting. Thanks instagram.

Once the storm stops, go out early Saturday morning and take pictures everywhere.

The snowman's expression in front of HR represents it's shoppers well
guhhhh / February 8, 2013 at 03:51 pm
so the warm yellow seems to be the filter of choice here. snow storm pics really do need to feel nice and warm don't they?
guhhhh / February 8, 2013 at 03:53 pm
any pictures taken with a camera and not a phone?

you should consider judging less and shutting up more.

Looks pretty..., unless you're stuck at the airport:(

The marble facade on Holt's is looking really dated and in need of replacement, especially when contrasted against white snow.

I thought you caught the essence of the storm beautifully and thorougly enjoyed the diversity of emotions depicted in your photos...bravo!

Excellent selection Derek. Hope you post more!
umm / February 8, 2013 at 05:28 pm
People were asked to submit photo's through Instagram, so obviously they have Instagram filters. relax.

Shouldn't you be on a bridge somewhere?
Gomez / February 8, 2013 at 09:03 pm
Terrible curation, I'm sure there must have been a better selection to choose from? The Instagram filters totally kills these.
Alan / February 8, 2013 at 11:36 pm
thought most pics came from blogto flickr pool?
peter parker / February 8, 2013 at 11:57 pm
without instagram these pics are pure sh1t. they lack originality and basic understanding of composition. please no more instagram retro filters.

Stay out of the snow and stay cozy!

The pictures of Toronto covered in snow are beautiful, just a pity one cannot capture the SILENCE.

At present in South Africa, the heat is intense, even the dramatic, spectacular storms we are experiencing don't cool the air, so the sight of icy coldness is much appreciated.

Thanks. j

user-pic much negativity on these comments. Enjoy them for what they are, and SHUT UP
Maybe our world would be a better place if people weren't so cynical and judgemental all the time.
Beautiful pictures.
