See The Stunning Photos From Toronto’s Deep Freeze

Record-breaking lows in Toronto makes for good photos

Winter just arrived in Toronto and with it record-breaking low temperatures that are freezing the city to its core.

On Thursday, the temperature dropped to -22° without windchill, the lowest temperature since -18° in 1960.

While the weather certainly makes the case for staying indoors, Torontonians still went about their daily lives, as is done in a city that’s experienced this kind of deep freeze before.

That also means photographers hit the streets to capture the serene beauty the cold weather brings: steam lifting off buildings, snow falling gently to the ground, and layers of ice covering trees like glass uniforms. Check out these gorgeou photos of Toronto frozen over.
