My wife and I first paddled through here late in the day as we were looking for a place to camp.  This wasn't it!  But I knew we had to paddle back the next morning so I could take some pictures.  I was surprised that my wife actually said yes to getting up well before dawn and paddling with me through pea soup fog so thick we couldn't see much beyond the bow of the canoe.  It only took about 20 minutes to get there but when you can't see and the sound is so diffuse, time doesn't seem to have much meaning.  By the time we landed and I had my gear set up, the sun was just starting to come up over the horizon.  The light through the mist was primordial.  To be honest, I just couldn't, for the life of me, find a spot to shoot from that worked.  This one was the best of the lot.  As I hope you can see, the light was fabulous but we we could only land on a little spit of land so there wasn't much room to manoeuvre.  Later, we brewed up some coffee and just sat there in amazement.

Great scene Kerry! I like the flow of the water (shutter speed?), and that light bursting through the trees and mixing with the mist is something else. Beautiful scene.

A very nice scene indeed Kerry, I suspect such is the value of photography as in keeping a record, that every time you look at that image it will take you back to that particular sunrise...(-: Record keeping is that which brought me to photography..  Thanks for posting.

Beautiful. The light and mist combined with the feathery water came together perfectly.

Thanks to you all - Mark, Geedee, David(s), Doug - for your kind comments and support.  It has been a pleasure hanging with you these last couple of years.  I posted my very first photographs here and learned a lot from all of you.

Gorgeous! Really get a feel for the rushing water. The sun looks like it's going to break through those trees.
