I came across this quiet, intimate view of lily pads floating in Middle Lake, Kenora after spending a few moments capturing a brief but dramatic sunrise. I had driven to Kenora with my friend Dave Benson to pick up a series of fine art prints from a show that had been hanging at Elizabeth Campbell Books for a couple of months. From the high vantage point of a rocky ledge, I isolated the lily pads with my 70-200mm lens fitted with a polarizing filter. While the 'big landscape' is often captivating, I am more often than not attracted to the more personal and interpretive intimate view.

I love the contrast of warm and cool colors. Abstractions seem to emphasize that even more, as in this Medicine Lake detail (Jasper, AB) made at sunset.

What the road passes by ....
Walking a little slower allowed me to discover this beautiful symmetrical arrangement by the side of the road.

Photographed on Lake Joseph in Minett, Ontario I modified this 'lake ice detail' with the FX Photo Studio Pro app using the Ancient Canvas preset.

As I look into this reflection in the Opeongo Pond, I can imagine discovering another world altogether!
