Telephoto of the day: following yesterday's telephoto shot of the L Tower from Regent Park, today's is a little more ambitious: the Moon from Earth! In this image by UrbanToronto Forum contributor mburrrrr, the moon rises behind Lake Ontario, with a bit of Toronto getting in the way, two towers in the Distillery and Canary districts to be more precise. Telephoto lenses make objects appear closer by compressing the distance, so while the moon appears to be a bit south of Kingston, it's more like it's overhead of, well, at least Fredericton.
