On one of the most beautiful and unique lakes that Ontario has to offer, the sunsets and stars are always something to look for.
Wolf Lake is special for its old growth red pines - trees that have stood for over three hundred years ...towering along the rocky shores.
I was contacted by an environmental expert from Toronto (Rob Nelson) to help make a time-lapse trailer to raise awareness about this special forest in order to protect it. Consequently, I packed my gear and headed north to shoot with him and another pro (Christoph Benfey) from Hamilton.
On this particular night, we had paddled in darkness through two lakes, made a portage, and swam through a lagoon in order to reach a waterfall which we lit ourselves and shot a time-lapse sequence of. After the sequence was complete, we made the long journey back to our camp...paddling under the light of these stars.
The stars were too pretty to sleep so I shot from the shoreline near our campsite for a couple hours. At around 5 a.m., shortly before the sun burst over the horizon, I witnessed this scene. After capturing this image, I was finally content so I packed in my gear and grabbed a few hours of sleep.
