Finding Beauty Underwater

When it comes to beauty, Mother Nature is the worlds finest artist. While she works in many mediums, some of her best creations can be found underwater.


Last weekend, I took a break from the studio and visited Toronto’s newish aquarium (Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada).

I had attempted to visit on Saturday, but the line up was ginormous, and the sun was wicked hot. So instead, I purchased timed tickets for Sunday – at dinner time – and sailed through the turnstiles. The timing could not have been more perfect. Save for a few stragglers, I had the run of the place.

Simply put, this place is spectacular – even with the $30 entry fee. There is a wide selection of creatures great and small, and most importantly, sharks – lots and lots of sharks.

When less crowded, this is probably the most tranquil spot in the city, and if you’ve got a decent camera, it’s a photographer’s wet dream – pun intended.

If you’re looking to add a little beauty to your day, I highly recommend you visit Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada.
