Fifty Point Sunrise

Fifty Point – Lake Ontario

An early morning trip with a few photo buddies to Fifty Point near Grimsby Ontario was rewarded with a lovely sunrise. This Lake Ontario location is a favorite spot for photographers to get creative and photograph these unique wooden pilings from an old dock.

Another shot at a different angle of the sunrise over Colpoys Bay on the long weekend. This is a great place to shoot from with lots of angles to choose from.

The last long weekend of the summer. Sleep in, relax. …wait what – Not this time.My wife and I were up at 6:00 am – Stopped at Tim’s for coffee and tea and then to a little cove just past the Wiarton Marina to take pictures of the sunrise. We may not have slept in but it is relaxing to sit and watch the sun rise. I am not a morning person but I never regret getting up for a beautiful start to the day.

This is a follow up to my previous post – Sunrise Surprise. While I still had a few minutes to capture the sunrise I scooted down the shore and found this snow covered cedar with a young tree poking through. It provided an interesting foreground for this shot. Colpoy’s Bay was frozen over but not enough to go out on the ice. What a beautiful way to start the day.

Sunrise Surprise - Wiarton

Sunrise Surprise – Wiarton

I was in Wiarton Ontario this weekend (about 2 hr’s north of where I live) to take some winter photos. The weather prediction was for overcast skies but I got out early in hopes of at least some good light. To my surprise the clouds opened up at the horizon and allowed for few minutes of a beautiful surprise sunrise. I just got out of the car and was lucky to get this shot before it disappeared.

Later throughout the morning there were a few more times the sun poked through but the rest of the weekend was indeed overcast and actually rainy on Sunday. Despite the weather I think it was a successful weekend and I will share a few more shots in the coming days.

This photo was taken this past spring on Vancouver Island. Each morning we got up early to catch the morning light. This day we were blessed with a beautiful sunrise!

There was a beautiful red sunrise this morning. The old saying goes – Red sky in the morning – Sailors Warning. Well the day turned out wonderful but a quick look at the radar just now show rain moving in!


Go Station in Milton

Go Transit is Ontario’s inter-regional transit system, linking Toronto to the greater Toronto area and beyond, via train and bus services. This was taken one early morning at the Milton Go station.

Wiarton Sunrise

Wiarton Sunrise

As promised yesterday here is the sunrise shot I took just before the reflections shot in Wiarton. The sky was pretty clear with just a few wispy clouds but the sun washed the sky with colour just before peeking over the horizon. I am not a morning person but watching the sun rise does something for the soul that makes getting up worth while.

Morning Reflections

Early Morning Reflections

I rose early on a crisp fall morning hoping to capture a colourful sunrise. I stopped at the Tim Hortons in Wiarton for a coffee to go and headed over to the west side of Colpy’s Bay to await the rising sun. The morning turned out to be cloudless but just before the sun rose above the horizon the sky began to glow red and purple. I will post that picture tomorrow. As the sun was rising with a soft morning light I shot these trees reflecting in the still water leaving me to reflect on how blessed we are to live in a Country that affords us the luxury of such beautiful scenery.
