There is one place on the Bow River in Calgary that steams up quite a bit in the early hours just before sunrise. This morning was very cold and I had been out walking around for about an hour. I took this shot with no feeling in my fingers. I even had to look to see where the shutter button was as I could not feel it either.

At the time I took this, it was quite dark out and I had no idea that ducks were still resting in the background.

20d, f14, 2 second shutter, ISO 100

Very, very poetic. Excellent. You have not only stamina but also courage to oversee the mandatory sharpness dictature.

I can see many pictures in this single one. I took out the part that is closest to my mind. Thank you, spy
