Harris Lake Just Before Sunrise

We were back in Ontario for a short visit, centered around Robin’s parents’ 60th wedding anniversary. We also got an opportunity to visit my stepmother at our family cottage on Harris Lake just outside Parry Sound. Given that I had been changing time zones like crazy over the past five weeks (Kuala Lumpur, Houston, Amsterdam and now Ontario), I was awake before the sun came up and grabbed my camera. I’ve taken a lot of photos of this little island over the years but always had issues separating it from the larger island behind it. This particular morning, the temperature difference between the air and the water created this beautiful mist that created the needed separation. For me, the lone tall tree on the island particularly evokes the landscape of the Canadian Shield perfectly.

A great example of being at the right place at the right time.
