This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: The Rough with the Smooth prompt.
I had no ideas for this prompt until I was thinking about going down to the local bay for the sunrise. Which is when the idea of rough and smooth water occurred to me and at that point two photos were obvious picks for the challenge.
Rough water on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario at sunrise.

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Morning.
I am a morning person and often have the alarm set to allow me to get to a location half an hour before sunrise. So here’s a small selection of photos taken around sunrise but not necessarily what I would call a photo of a sunrise.
Waves and rocks on the Lake Huron shoreline soon after sunrise.
A female Eurasian Blue Tit egg laying early in the morning.
A juvenile Red Knot on the Lake Huron shoreline at sunrise.
Waves and ripples on Lake Huron at sunrise.
Snow and hoarfrost covered farmland at sunrise.

Sunday morning saw me down at the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise. Three days into spring and it was so cold that I got a second pair of gloves out of the car to go over the thin gloves I was using to operate the camera.

I had been standing on the dock in Colpoy’s Bay photographing the sunrise when I turned around and saw the reflection of the tree being distorted by the ripples.
