Erie Glow

Erie Glow - on Lake Erie, near Port Burwell, Ontario

Travelling along the north shore of Lake Erie, it is not uncommon to see a glow out on the lake, just at the horizon. Presumably this is sunlight breaking through the clouds, reflecting off the surface of the lake but it creates, on occasion, an other-worldly sense. Something is happening that does not seem entirely normal.

The leaves have fallen from the trees. Vegetation has turned to winter browns and yellows. The skies are a mixture of grays and blues. The snow has not yet arrived. There is a sense of peace, of rest, of stillness and silence. The land is prepared for winter.
