If you follow this blog on a regular basis, you have probably figured out that I am a morning person. I love getting up before the sun and taking my camera out to see what I can see before anyone else is awake. What I wind up seeing are things that other people don’t see, because they’re not awake to see them.
While I was up in Muskoka this summer, I made sure to take the canoe out at sunrise. At this time of day, no one else is out on the lake (except for the occasional fisherman), and the mist is not yet gone from the water.
On this particular day there was a low bank of cloud moving through, which meant that the mist did not burn off the water as quickly as it does on clear days. The sun came up sandwiched between the clouds and the mist, and the light was incredibly soft and delicate. I probably took a hundred photos of it. This one is my favourite.
