Torontohenge

12 photos of yesterday's dazzling Torontohenge sunset

Yesterday Toronto had the chance to experience a magnificent sunset. That's because it was Torontohenge, that time when the setting sun aligns perfectly with Toronto's east and west streets. It happens only twice a year, and rarely does the evening commute look so pretty.

The sun dipped below the horizon at 6:18 p.m. and photographers couldn't wait to snap a shot of the phenomenon. Beyond the Torontohenge effect, it was also just a gorgeous autumn dusk that turned the city a golden hue, a brief bit a beauty that was equally worthy of capture from whatever angle.

Here are some of my favourite photos from yesterday's epic sunset.
