Natural landscapes: the drama of daybreak


I made this photo in 2009, but even now, that morning still stands out as one of the most amazing sunrises I’ve ever been blessed to witness. This lake, in central Alberta, is a popular summer recreation destination. But for some people, it’s just an oversized slough. I recall showing this and other sunrise photos from that morning to a co-worker who had a summer job at Gull Lake. It took several minutes of convincing before she would consider this to be her old summer job location.
