The title of this post is a play on the song Midnight Dark Water by the Ketch Harbour Wolves. The album, Dead Calm Horizon, has found itself on near constant repeat for me lately. They are a special kind of band.
It’s been ages since I was able to get out shooting landscapes, something I hope to do a bit more of soon. It felt so good to stand in the quiet at the waters edge, waiting for the shutter to close and just listen. I have missed that.
This photo was taken just around sunset at Windfall Lake on Manitoulin Island. I took a few variations on this shot before finding a something I liked. The longer exposure smoothed out the water and allowed a little motion in the reeds to show. I kind of like the serene mood it conveys. I hope you do as well.
