Winter Sunset at Elora Gorge

SUNSET AT ELORA GORGE
Not far from here is a little village named Elora. There's a fantastic gorge there in which flows the Grand River. The Grand River is probably the longest river in this part of Ontario and it flows into Lake Erie, one of the Great Lakes.

When this photo was taken, it was about 5:30 pm and the setting sun was shining so brightly on the higher ground where I was standing but the gorge itself was almost dark. The oak tree's leaves had not fallen off and the sun shining on them made the scene so bright and golden.

I must go up there again and take more photos as I really like this area and it's not far away!

This photo is a glorious looking painting.
Thanks so much for your concern for my husband. He is feeling somewhat better and the Dr. says when his antibiotics are through he should be in pretty good shape.
