I needed a beautiful sunrise-over-water photo for a center spread in the Greek Element book, Water. So i went up north to Lake Superior and stayed at the cabin of a friend whose husband had recently passed away. The first few mornings were foggy and raining but did give me the opportunity to scout locations for the best possible spot.
Before dawn on the last morning before I had to leave I was standing out on a rock with camera on tripod waiting for the sun. When it began to show over the horizon, I was stunned at the beauty of the scene. The brilliance of the light and the long sweeping cloud made an unforgettable experience.
The wife of my friend believes it was a gift from her deceased husband, who loved the lake and she still feels his presence there. What do you think?
