Queen’s Park in Toronto from a drone’s perspective

Queen’s Park in Toronto from a drone’s perspective

Last week, I flew the DJI Phantom 3 near Queen’s Park in Downtown Toronto. The park is in the middle of the University of Toronto main campus, just north of the financial district. The magenta building in the middle of the park is the Ontario Legislative Building, that houses the Legislative Assembly of Ontario.

The amazing thing is that you can actually shoot at night pretty easily with the Phantom 3. Some of these pictures are 3 seconds exposure!! When I saw the results on my computer, I was blown away! Sure, some of the shots were blurry, but among 3 or 4 attempts, there was at least one sharp picture. This is good because the noise is quickly impossible to manage above ISO 100.

From Queen’s Park, the view to the South shows the impressive University Avenue, that seems to split Downtown in two.

Northeast of the park is the growing cluster of tall buildings around the Yonge and Bloor intersection.

The drone is quickly becoming my favorite way to capture cityscapes, so stay tuned, because there is more to come!
