Picture of the Day: White Christmas in Toronto

Photograph by SCOTT ROGERS


In this incredible capture by Scott Rogers we see trees bathed in snow and sunlight on Christmas eve in Toronto, Canada (the Sifter’s home town!).

Unfortunately Christmas was a difficult time for many Toronto residents this year. Last Saturday (Dec. 21) the city experienced a violent ice storm that left hundreds of thousands without power while the roads were covered in trees and branches that could not sustain the added weight of the ice on its limbs. After more than 72 hours, there are still an estimated 54,000 customers without power.

The photograph was uploaded to local Toronto site blogTO’s Flickr pool. It was featured as their Photo of the Day on December 25 and also shared on their Facebook page where I came across it.
