Some mornings are more special than others and one morning when I was busy at work patrolling the Head Bay Forestry Road for the company I work for during the winter months, I came across a spectacular sunrise. As I rounded the corner past the Canton Creek watershed, I caught the sun rising over Perpendicular Bluffs in Head Bay. I immediately pulled over to the side of the road and set up my tripod and camera and proceeded to shoot a series of photographs documenting the sun rising into the sky while reflecting into the calm waters of Nootka Sound.
The air was still and there were no sounds other than those of the birds working the odd bait schools that kept surfacing in the bay after being pushed there by the diving birds underneath them. I continued to shoot photos bracketing my shots to ensure that I got the best range of colors and light that presented themselves to me at the moment. I even threw on a polarizing filter to darken the water and sky while mitigating the sun flare on the water and sky.
The end results were a series of images that captivated me and others whom I have shown them to in the local camera club. Here is one such image showing the sun flare along with its reflection in the calm water and the fog still rolling back out toward the open ocean to the south. Enjoy.
