[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
At the time I took this photo I had been up 24 hours without sleep and would be another 4 before I got a few hours. What was the occassion? I met my husband , who is a ship captain, in the welland canal. The canal is a series of 8 locks that take ships from lake erie to lake ontario or vice versa. Its a series of steps which take the ship over the Niagara Escarpment and around Niagara Falls.
At this point in time I was very tired but very happy to be seeing the sunrising and the quiet peacefulness of the morning casting relections in the water everywhere.
I have been away for awhile on the ship and then on a trip to Vermont. I am looking forward to catching up and looking at your new photos! Thanks for visiting my gallery and your commments on my photograph.

Hi Donna,
This is a great moment catched here!
I like so much the light, it produces a peaceful mood very particular.
The leafless trees and their reflections on the calm water contributes to that.
I think you're so lucky to be able to travel and see this landscapes, despite the lack of sleep!
Early wape up always pays !!!
Congratulations and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Hello Donna,
Wonderful atmosphere is captured!
The mood is like something from a fairytale, with the misty air hovering over the water...
Well composed landscape, attractive reflections and sharp fine details!

Hello Donna,
Welcome back, this is an amazingly goregous scene, mornings have always been my favorite. Your capture has so much beautiful soft lighting and reflections in a wonderful compostion. Thanks and great job Donna.

Hi Donna,
I can imagine that you were happy to see such a morning glory after beeing up for 24 hours. I am sure it made you relaxed. The high POV from the boat gave the photo a very interesting perspective. I just whish you had managed to get a little more detail and color on the sky part. Maybe a good idea to invest in some grad ND filters.

hi donna!
excellent shot with wonderful reflection.

Hi Donna,
this looks wonderful. I love the colors and they so perfectly divided byt the dark silhouettes of the trees and horizon.
Lovely composition, very mooy and the scenery is lovely.

Hi donna,
I really like this photograph as it appears like a watercolour.
Beautiful pastel colours from the morning light and a very pleasing aesthetic composition with the dissecting piece of land.
The water is calm enough to allow the reflection to occur.
All in all, well worth the wait!
