Even Toronto haters might take pause after watching this gorgeous time-lapse video shot in various locations around the city.

Photographer Tom Ryaboi, an active contributor to the UrbanToronto.ca forums posted this breathtaking and moving video of his hometown.

"When I started time-lapse photography a year ago I thought it would be something I could just jump right into and master, as I've been taking stills for nearly a decade now. But I was quickly humbled by the medium as I struggled to put together worthwhile footage after repeated early attempts. This, I realized, was a whole other animal," Ryaboi writes on the video's description.

Ryaboi also tweeted that he was arrested twice while shooting the video, likely for trespassing on to rooftops to get footage.
