Why We Chose It

You have to get up pretty early to get a shot like this. The water is like glass in this sunrise shot, and the colours are spectacularly vibrant. We love the many layers created by the treeline, the mist, the rounded mountain behind and everything again in the reflection. And the sun creeping in from the left uplifts the entire shot. This quiet corner of Quebec, near Gracefield in the Outaouais region about an hour-and-a-half north of Ottawa, couldn’t have been captured more beautifully.
