The vast expanse of Canada is dotted with thousands of scenic lakes, and today's
picture gives us just a glimpse of their natural beauty and
serenity. Here is photographer Rick DaSilva's story behind the
"This photograph was taken on Paudash Lake near Cardiff,
over Labour Day weekend at 6:30 am with the sun breaking
the cloud cover. I had taken a shot but with a water
and it was suggested that a Canoe would be interesting. I tried to
reshoot it but the conditions were not exactly the
same. You can
view "Morning Sun" on
Flickr page to compare the two. Enjoy!
This image was shot at 30mm focal length, F/4.5 at 1/400 second,
ISO 100. Canon Rebel XSi. Straight from the camera with no post

This is such a lovely scene. I have never had the pleasure of
visiting Canada but I sure would love to. Nice job Mr. DaSilva.

Mr. DaSilva, I want to thank you for submitting your wonderful
photograph. I spent 13 of my boyhood summers at my parents cottage
on Lake Temagami in Northern Ontario. I came to deeply love its
beautiful scenery and the warmth and friendliness of itís people. So
many memories of good times are brought to mind while I look at your
marvelous shot. Thanks again!

This looks like a typical autumn morning on the large pond just down
the road from my house. The mist sure gives it a peaceful look. Nice
job on the photo.
