Lake Ontario & Around
These photos were taken by myself (Hanif Bayat)
Except Lake Michigan, which is located completely inside the USA, all the other great lakes of north America are shared between Ontario and the USA. These lakes are connected to each other and they have the largest source of freshwater on earth. The water at first goes from Lake Superior to Lake Michigan, Lake Huron and Georgian bay and then from Lake Huron to Lake Erie and later through the Niagara river the water passes to Lake Ontario. Finally through St. Lawrence river, water goes from Lake Ontario to the Atlantic ocean. Lake Ontario average depth is around 85 meters, which make it almost the deepest lake after lake Superior in north America great lakes, however Lake Ontario is the smallest one in size.
Lake Ontario from Toronto & Toronto Islands
Woodbine Beach (Toronto)
It is the main beach inside Great Toronto Area (GTA).
Cobourg is a small town just 120 km far east of Toronto. In the below photos, one can find several beautiful photos from the icy lake Ontario shore. The very fast winds (faster than 50km per hour) brought water to the shore and have covered every thing in the area just by the lake with thick layers of ice.
Lake Ontario from Niagara area
It is exciting that Toronto can be seen from 70km far away on the other side of lake Ontario (Niagara on the Lake, St. Catharine) .
