A couple of weekends ago I ended up at the Big Qualicum River on a foggy winter morning. I was there looking to photograph birds gathering along the banks to feast on the last of the salmon runs. One juvenile Bald Eagle was oblivious to me as it ripped apart a salmon carcass and let me get right down to a great position on the river bank. The fog was heavy and I’ve tried to convey that in my images. On the West Coast, the salmon means life to so many species of animals.
How happy would I be if I could start every day this way? It was so beautiful, it inspired me to write my very first Haiku!
We are having an exceptionally mild winter here in Nanaimo. Combine that with the sunrise being around 8am and who has an excuse for not getting out of bed and capturing the glory of a new day starting? Not me!
Work had me on the 1st ferry over to Gabriola this morning. This in turn gave me an hour to drive around the Island trying to catch some nice winter morning light amongst the fog banks rolling in. Best way to start the day ever!
