Up, earlier than sunrise, traveling, from High Level to Fort Vermilion … early, early morning to witness all that comprises sunrise – the Peace River looking east from Fort Vermilion at the newly risen sun, a beaver marking territory, a Buttertown homestead and cattails coloured in spring splendor.

    1. Hello, hello …

      I agree, the first image has most of spring’s colouring … and they are cattails … a growing theme.

      Good schtuff. 😉

    I like the sunrise a lot, but am fascinated by the linear lines in the homestead. Very good, with beautiful colours.

    1. Hey there, Jim …

      The homestead is one that I’m coming back to time and time again throughout the year – age and former time attract; more recent shots have to do with the homestead within setting. Lines of the homestead seem to give it strength and are at contrast with the surroundings of lake, field/pasture and trees/foliage.

      I’m liking the sunrise shot, too, and am likely to explore water shots.

      Take care … 😉

    I was going to comment about the light in the first photo and then got completely distracted by the beaver! 🙂 enjoyed this post!

    1. Hey there, LB …

      A totally interesting morning for photos … landscape, then owner of the landscape (the beaver) … lots of fun.

      Enjoy your day! 😉
