"Look Out for TorontoHenge in Oct. 2012" explains when and where to head to a street with a long east-west view and watch for the sun to rise or set in the distance. My first attempt, in October of 2011, was pretty spectacular even though I didn't have very tall buildings to flank the setting sun.
As always, my Xanga blog ("The Annual Autumn TorontoHenge for 2012") also publicizes my article.
One Competitive Writing Tip
I had been intending to go back through my notes and take another set of photographs this month. However, some of my competitors, the Toronto Star newspaper and the Walrus periodical, published forecast articles.
So I decided to follow suit in DeHaan Services, rather than set out on an expedition to hunt the elusive images next week.
My writing tip is simply to remain open to notice and learn from whatever the competition may do. In a sense, the Toronto Star used one of my genres, to advise people to have the experience ahead of time. They may yet simply take an image and print it the next day; in which case they would emulate what I had done twice before.
In my view, it's really great to let readers know of upcoming events. The more publicity others generate for some annual Toronto event that I cover, the more chance of someone searching for more information...and hopefully I would have covered that base also.
That's especially true if my article actually does cover more background than what my competitors carry, especially when it comes to TorontoHenge.
