Summer is so fleeting. These days I greedily savour every warm fresh air moment I can. Calm mornings at the water’s edge are among my favourite quintessential Ontario summer moments. Getting up in time to make sunrise images means a very early start and though I am often still sluggish as I set up my gear, on calm mornings there is a peaceful energy that radiates from the quiet of nature and recharges my soul. Perhaps it’s the promise of a sunny day ahead just waiting to be filled with warm weather pastimes.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend and had a chance to get out and enjoy your own quintessential moments.
