Taking photos of Elora, Ontario is one of the things many amateur and professional photographers do when day-tripping around Ontario.
Elora is one of the prettiest towns in this province. It’s no wonder it is a popular spot for day trips from Toronto. Not only is the town so photo-worthy, but it also has local trails including the Elora Gorge Trail and the Elora Cataract Trailway which leads past Hillsburgh and Erin into Cataract.
Prettiest Place to Photograph in Ontario
During the summer period, it’s one of the favourite places to visit while day-tripping for many. The best time to visit is early in the morning, when the Brant River waters are calm and reflections make for beautiful photos.
In the Fall, the colourful leaves make for an even more spectacular scene reflecting off the river. It’s a photographer’s must-visit when photographing Ontario scenes.
Our recent stop, we couldn’t resist taking photos of Elora. The timing offered us early morning scenes, just as the town was waking up on a Saturday morning. The light was perfect for the types of photos I wanted to take.
The only problem with an early morning visit is that I always want to check out the interesting restaurants in town. It’s too early in the day!
Evening photos with the light of the setting sun create a different mood. In particular, the river ends up looking like it’s glowing. Perhaps next time we’ll head through the area at sunset.
