Belwood/ Sky Watch

Belwood Lake Conservation Area last night

My husband and I took a road trip to Fergus and Elora, Ontario yesterday and on the way back stopped at the Belwood Lake Conservation Area just before sunset.  When I took this shot, I was on the path over the dam that creates the lake on the Grand River.

Luna Miranda said...

a brilliant sunset. makes me think of an egg i had for breakfast.;P

Arija said...

I do love it when the sun gathers its wonders around itself instead of emblazoning the whole sky.
The halo banda from gold to red show up so well with the diffusing clouds behind.

Have yourself a grand Halloween weekend, who knows, you may meet a wee ghostie.

Reader Wil said...

This photo has a very special beauty. Not only is the sunset like magic but the various colours of grey are really contributing to an extra beautiful composition! You really have an eye for photography!
Have a great SWF.
