Fall Colors – Pickerel River, Ontario
After the 1998 Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia I took a holiday and went up north to a friend’s cottage to relax and unwind from a successful season. Ontario’s colours are nothing short of spectacular in the fall and it was that “time of year” again when they were just starting to change.
One morning, when I got up, I looked out the big picture window onto the lake. The view that I saw was absolutely breathtaking: the lake was like glass, the morning mist was rising off of the water, and the sun was starting to come out. The colours of the lake front trees were brilliant against the dark silhouette of the taller ones. It was where time stood still and I made only one photograph.
Once the shutter had been clicked I knew that I had just captured a moment where everything stood still.
