Fire Over Queensville/ Sky Watch



The sun setting over Queensville (Easy Gwillimbury), Ontario

Still fields and trees, one day this beautiful setting will be covered with subdivisions. Urban sprawl, I'm afraid. York Region, of which East Gwillimbury is a part, is one of the fastest growing areas in North America.

I feel a little 'shy' myself..
Awesome shot. I hope this beautiful area is NEVER covered with cookie cutter houses. Stop them, EG!!! MB

I'd hate to think this beautiful scene would be home to a subdivision in the future.

At first glance, I thought it was real fire. I'm glad it turns out to be a wonderfully beautiful burning sky.
