Our last entry for this month's photo contest comes from Lisa Gallant, who sent this photo of a busy downtown Toronto intersection to our CBC Flickr pool.
This picture of a bright March day at Yonge and Wellesley Streets captures the bustling motion and activity of a downtown core. There's almost too much to keep track of: the motorcycle in the foreground, pedestrians walking in all directions, cars and bicycles, not to mention the red light and no-left-turn sign for a little misdirection to boot.
It's a fantastic shot that captures this month's contest theme and a "community" feel all at once!
Today's photo comes from cbc.ca member barrhavenmama6 of Ottawa, who sent in this photo of a Thomas the Tank Engine toy. The picture is titled "Thomas in Motion," a clever play on our March in Motion photo theme.
"No rails, no problem ; )" writes barrhavenmama6.
We've received a few pictures of racing train engines throughout the month, but none quite like this. The photo could have used a sharper focus on the toy itself, but Thomas proved himself a really useful engine earning itself a photo pick of the day.
Today's photo comes from CBC.ca member Kpling, who sent in this shot from an airliner window overlooking the Rocky Mountains. He titled it "Soaring higher than an eagle."
Kpling calls the majestic range "the mountain range we Canadians connect to," and this photo certainly shows us why.
The window's frame also frames the picture, making us feel like we're in the airplane and soaring over the mountain range - at a speed of roughly 800 kilometres per hour.
Today's photo of the day was emailed to us by Ryan Scott, who took this photo at Point Pelee National Park in Leamington, Ontario.
"In the picture is a red-winged blackbird flying through the marsh near the boardwalk. This was taken just as the sun was setting," said Ryan.
Ryan almost missed both the bird and the sunset. He had arrived at Point Pelee at about 6:45 p.m., not knowing the park closed a 7:00 p.m.
Luckily, some kind staff members let him in for 20 minutes -- and for free!
Today's photo of the day comes from CBC community member Kpling, who snapped this photo of a roller coaster in Pacific Park, Santa Monica Pier, California.
"The picture is of my daughters riding high in the roller coaster," said the photographer, who may or may not prefer a more grounded approach to amusement parks.
The bright colours and vibrant facial expressions really make this photograph a thrill to see.
Today's pick of the day comes from CBC community member DGK1150, who snapped this shot of snowmobile drag racing in Atlin, B.C.
Atlin is a small isolated community in the northwest corner of British Columbia, where snowmobiles power about on Atlin Lake.
This winter sport is not for the faint of heart, but it is a great addition to our March in motion gallery.
Today's photo of the day comes courtesy of Jeannette Campbell of New Westminster, B.C, who uploaded this snapshot of a quick thinking crow.
"I had just spread some sunflower seeds out for the birds and this
crow just swooped in to grab the treats. I was lucky I had the camera
ready," explained the photographer.
The light background really helps the dark bird pop.
There's also a nice sense of movement in the bird's wings, and the sharp focus on the its face reveals a seemingly mischievous smile. The picture is perfect for our March in motion theme.
Thanks for the submission!
