[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Rising very early in the morning sometimes provides pleasurable surprises while the rest of the world sleeps. This was taken at 4:45 am along the shores of the Jacques Cartier River just as the rising morning sun below the horizon bounced some spectacular lighting off the low rain clouds that were moving in from behind me.
This is our new Golden Retriever pup Maiya admiring the sunrise.
I used the flash for this photo to capture the dog as well as the background colouring.
I've been away from TL for awhile busy with life's other priorities on the farm but it's nice to be back and see so many wonderful contributions flowing into the gallery :-)

Wow! spectacular ! good use of the flash on Maiya without blowing out the colors. Nice little frame too. Glad your back... I was kind of worried... you know.

Dear Derek,
What a lovely picture; I wish your dog could see it! The ripples at his/her feet add something special.

Once a day, I will succeed in getting up early to see these splendored things... but it's hard ;-)

This rising sun is wonderful, and the presence of the dog makes it unusual. It really looks as if it were admiring the landscape !

Welcome back on TL/TE, Derek !

Hi Derek, congratulations! Goes directly to my favourites... Did you take this photo using a tripod, or handheld?
Best of luck with Maiya, and beware: Golden Retrievers do like to swim, don't they? ;o))

Hi Derek! Nice to see you're back with this beautiful picture. Golden retrievers are fantastic dogs for countrylife. I'm sure she will be happy in the farm. Now, this image has something surrealist as if Maiya was coming out of a dream. The light contrast is amazing, and very well controlled to make a harmonious ensemble. Sure Maiya will love swimming... her feet are already in the water! Great atmosphere in your photo. Very well done.

This is wonderful Derek. Those beautiful red skies in the early morning looks very dramatic. Having your pet dog Maiya in the foreground is terrific. This is beauty at it's best. Very well done.

Derek, this is another beautiful image. I love how we can see not only the normal ripples from the current, but the ripples from Maiya's feet. Good to see you!

Quel chance, de voir un lever de soleil magique comme celui-ci. Les couleurs sont superbes Derek.

Bon ça! Moment de grâce.

wonderful sunrise and your dog fill perfectly he void in the foreground. Great use of the flash.

TFS for sharing a magic moment

Eu gosto do visual do horizonte, pelas cores, apenas o uso do flash no cao ficou forte, ele em silhouette ficaria bem.
