Fall in the Brickworks Quarry Park

This is another photo in the series that I've been posting over the past few days. I took this while out on my bike riding the ravine trails in Toronto. This place, the Don Valley Brickworks Park was constructed after the closure of the Brickworks clay quarry.  While much of the pit was filled in the constuction of the park (rumour has it with the fill from the Scotiabank Plaza Tower) it is today a UN Geological Reserve. Before the fill arrived observers could see each stage of the Toronto area's geologic history in the sediment deposits that made up the quarry wall.  Today the site is a beautiful park popular with people out for a ride, jog, or with their families.

Raw-edited; no further post processing.

Stunning capture, Iain. (:o)
A park that Toronto certainly needs!
I've just been trawling through your archive again and this one caught my eye.

It has a slightly impressionistic look to it and the little slivers of light top and bottom make it look like a feathered edge frame.

I like the colours, reflections, composition ... everything in fact. Wonderful shot.
