Winter 2010, the first icy night of the winter, all the creek around my house are freezing. It's the first time that I am witness of a fast freezing like this, and what a great opportunity for a photographer.

I already posted this picture before but there was so much dust in it that I deleted it from my photostream. Since I have Lightroom 3, I reprocessed some of my old pictures and the result is way more better.

I remember that day. I was hiking the Whiskey trail in the Seven Sisters Provincial Park, BC, I tough that was the Whiskey trail, when the trail disapered into the fog!

I did not have my GPS or compass that day, things that I never forget now, and I started turning around into the thick clouds of the mountain, completely lost until I saw a bubble of light in the fog right in front of me.

It's a lake, I know where I am, very far from the original trail!!!

I am taking a lunch break, when the wind blow out the fog in the center of the lake. Slowly, this duck is paddling his way in front of me, and flick!!!

It's on my way out of the bush three days after, that I realized that the trail that I was following at the beginning, was a moose trail. After looking at the map at home, I had done 3.5 kilometers on the wrong direction in the fog...........lucky duck I am to not get lost!!!
