Sunset over Lac Deschênes, Britannia Bay

Sunday November 11, 2012, around 5:00pm, with winter comes the short days, Sunday we saw sunset before 5:00pm EST.

Lac Deschênes is a 27-mile long lake on the Ottawa River that runs from the Chats Falls hydro dam near Fitzroy Harbour in the west to the Deschênes Rapids in the east. It is a little over two miles wide at its widest point and little more than a few hundred yards at its narrowest. The provincial border between Ontario and Quebec runs through the length of the lake with the City of Ottawa on its southern shore and the city of Gatineau on much of its northern shore.
