Powerful wind gusts whip along the rocky shore of Abraham Lake, early on this summer morning. The warm colors of the rising sunlight wash the overcast skies, and contend with the shadowy blue tones of the earth and water below. In the relative shelter of some trees, I watch the display and manage to stay just enough out of the blasting wind to capture the scene.
