I feel you are all tired of pictures of snow, however beautiful, at this end of the winter so this week I am again sharing a photograph from my personal archives. One that I like a lot but which I know some struggle with.

This photograph was taken about five years ago as the sun rose beyond a bank of trees across a lake in the Quebec forest (Kenauk, of course). The night had been cold and the still lake surface was hidden below rising streams of morning mist which caught and diffused the sunlight as it streamed over the trees. I doubt that this scene lasted more than a few minutes in total.

The colours, for a short moment, were pretty much as the camera captured them before the golden light faded and the mist reverted to white.
