Morning on the Lake

By AnnaBanana  
Dawn on the shores of Lake Ontario at Oakville. This is a really special image for me to be posting, as my family lives in Oakville and I lost my younger brother Alex suddenly in early October, aged just 31. This is, I suppose, a form of tribute to him. He was always so supportive of my photography, and always was so proud of my achievements. I took this image 6 years ago on a cold December morning out with my mom (who had just received her first DSLR for Christmas). Alex loved this photo.

Happy New Year to you all. May 2014 bring you all you desire - love, happiness, health, prosperity.

Thank you for the votes and comments on yesterday's upload, they are much appreciated. Special thanks to ddolfelin for the UA Smile

Have a lovely New Year's Day, and thank you for looking.

A nicely balanced composition using the silhouetted tree and the small pool in the foreground.
