Greg McCracken

Greg McCracken's photographs create a very special atmosphere and mood and capture the breathtaking beauty of the Elora landscape. Greg, an outdoor enthusiast, grew up in New Brunswick and was attracted to the Fergus-Elora area 20 years ago by the quaintness of Elora's Mill Street and the Gorge. He has lived in Fergus ever since. An amateur photographer for the past ten years, he moved into the digital world early in the game. Of special appeal to Greg are the colours of early morning and twilight time. He achieves some of the prettiest colour combinations by balancing artificial light with the last remaining natural light in the day. That was how he achieved the colours in the photograph of the limestone walls of the Elora Mews.

For more of Greg's outdoor photography you can visit one of his websites: www.gregmccrackenphotography.com

Jim Reed

Piers of the Victoria Street Walking BridgePainting of the Grand River in Elora, by Jim Reed

Jim Reed has expressed creatively since painting with a group of impressionists in 1976. The attitude in Elora at that time has been related to Paris in the 20's / "Profiles", recently published, gives descriptions of several artists who have been inspired by the area. Jim is community minded, having worked to establish historic designations; preservation of the tallest pier bridge in Ontario, purchase of the Elora/Cataract trail, and the Elora Centre for the Arts. You may have seen his work in Eola's Gallery on Mill Street. He wants the charm of Elora to be protected and appreciated as a spiritually serene hub of activity.

You must experience Elora by rowboat! Why was the Harold Town description of the Gorge, "as in a cathedral"? Was it really Casson's favourite place? Was the panoramic camera and roll film invented in Elora? Did the warden really see diamonds in the sky when he went to say goodbye to the bridge on a wintery day in the gorge? Are there far more than the 500 located historic buildings found there? Can one walk up the river to the next village from the stairs into the gorge? Where did Jesse James live? Why was he really here? Who were the KGC? Years of mystery!... and a folk tale EVERY DAY.
