Natural landscapes: the sunrise spotlight


I was wandering along the shore of the Bow River, which flows through this western Canadian city, looking for interesting spring ice formations, when I came upon this opening around a small boulder.
After trying a few exposures, I got the idea of pulling a small flashlight out of my camera bag and using it to spotlight the rock. Worked pretty well, eh? 🙂
