Second (and last) day of my quick road trip to replenish my landscape stock photos. I got up at 5 am to get this shot, in freezing weather. The car was iced all over and unprepared as I was (temperature was near 15 in Montreal!) I didn’t have my car winter tools nor did I have my gloves. Note to self: leave these in the car at all times from September to June!

So I got to the shore of the Saint-Laurent just in time to catch the first rays of light. This is one of the few shots I got in these precious minutes. This is a 30 seconds exposure at 100 ISO, giving the water a smooth appearance. I didn’t downplay the blue cast since it’s key to the dawn light. It makes a very nice black and white shot as well, I kept hesitating between the two, but the color version won out in the end.
