Natural landscapes: under the dome of sunrise


I’ve seen more spectacular sunrises, but for some reason this scene – just a few kilometres east of this western Canadian city’s downtown core – came together spectacularly well. It helped to have a nice mix of water and ice. Plus, the long exposure turned the water mostly silky, which helped it reflect the sunrise colours.

One thought on “Natural landscapes: under the dome of sunrise

  1. This is a truly glorious photo, Frank — the different textures of water and ice, and the outstanding colors of this bursting sunrise. The silhouetted trees are nice, too.
