This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Taking A Break.
I don’t really take breaks, I almost always have a camera with me and my routine is pretty much the same as when I’m at home. I get up early for the sunrises, I’m scanning for birds and wildlife and watching for photo opportunities when out and about.
Which got me thinking about some of the sunrises I’ve seen this summer. We live in an area popular with tourists. It’s fairly common for me to get to one of my local sunrise locations to find people camping despite the parking areas being signposted no overnight camping.
Do you know the really sad part? I’m guessing that these people are camping there simply to save paying for a camp site. I don’t recall ever seeing any of them appear to watch the sunrise.
Here’s four sunrises from this summer. All taken from the dock at Colpoy’s Bay, Ontario, Canada.

I headed down to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise on Tuesday morning. The local weather station was reporting partly cloudy when I got up but it was almost solid cloud apart from a small section on the horizon when I arrived at the bay.
I had to walk to the end of the dock at Colpoy’s Bay to see the small section of open sky. This is the view as the sun cleared White Cloud Island before it disappeared behind the thick cloud.
