A Summer Sunset at Elk Island

It seems Elk Island National Park is one of those handy spots to escape the city and enjoy a bit of nature at it's finest.  Close enough that the trip can happen spontaneously, far enough to be able to enjoy quiet and peace and one or two of amazing sunsets.  Mac has recently shared some of his images from one of our trips in his post Nature walk with the Fuji X-Pro1 and here are some shots from our most recent trip there.  It was one of those spur of the moment escapades that paid of with a gorgeous light and a wonderful colour of the sky beautifully reflected in the quiet waters of Astotin Lake..

And after the sun has finally set the view has changed yet again and granted us yet another set of wonderful colours:

There just isn't anything more peaceful than watching a beautiful sunset surrounded by nature.. Even the hoards of mosquitoes were not able to keep us away from the view for a long time. ;D
