Like it or not, there’s no escaping the CN Tower. Views from the building are so ubiquitous that it’s hard to find a genuinely interesting shot––to say nothing of shots of the building. Still, plenty of photographers pull off a view of the city from the tower that’s different and interesting, be it of a fog-covered downtown or a city up late for Nuit Blanche.
Add to that pack Derek Purdy’s neat stitched panorama shot, taken on Friday and uploaded to our Flickr pool this morning. View it full-sized at a 7663 x 1505 pixels wide (the preview image above doesn’t come close to doing it justice), and you can see the sea of condos, all your favourite downtown landmarks, and the sparse trees and parks made sparser and duller by fall. Though its endless grays don’t exactly flatter Toronto, it’s definitely worth a look.
