Photographer's Note

Taken last week at beautiful Patricia Lake while on honeymoon. What an absolutely incredible place the Canadian Rockies is!! Luckily I was allowed to bring my camera and the sunrises were at such a reasonable time that I managed to catch a few. This one was actually a sunset, down on the jetty at Patricia Lake Bungalows. I had been sitting outside of our cottage reading a book and drinking a beer, all the while keeping an eye on the ever changing light. As the sky started to grow more orange, I grabbed my bag and wandered down to the jetty, only about 20 yards away and snapped a few shots. It really was a dream location!!! I named the shot after a famous quote that I heard British TV presenter Ray Mears say in one of his programmes (not his quote though):

Travel a thousand miles by train and you are a brute;

Pedal five hundred miles on a bicycle and you remain basically bourgeois;

Paddle a hundred miles in a canoe and you are already a child of nature.
