Misty Morning – Lake Vaughan

Lake Vaughan


One of the best aspects of nature and landscape photography is serendipity. Regardless of the planning, you just never know when an unexpected image will present itself, completely without warning. Such was the case last week when I went on a day long photo shoot, two hours up the South Shore of Nova Scotia. It turned into a bright, cloudless day, yielding mostly flat, uninspiring shots. Yet, on the early morning drive to meet up with the other two photographers, I turned a corner, driving along a road that follows the shore of Lake Vaughan, a man-made lake resulting from a dam on the Tusket River, only to see this image. I quickly stopped, walked out on a wharf, lay down to get the camera just inches above the water, and took several images as the sun slowly rose, burning off the early morning mist. This was the one I was most pleased with.
