Portfolio: Twiggy River Dawn

Updated: Aug 17, 2021

My wife, Lisa, has been working at a construction site on the Fraser River for over a year, and I have been driving her to and from work. That means Rowan and I get to spend a lot of time down by the river, and we have seen many dawns there. This particular morning was especially spectacular, and I have many photos at different stages. Here, we see the very early stages of sunrise through a screen of bare winter branches. I love this palette, and I have spent a lot of time working with sunrise and sunset photos in an attempt to harness that universal appeal.

Quite a brisk morning, as I recall. There was still snow on the ground in nearby farmers' fields.

Thanks much, Christopher. I like this one, too. I'm jealous of your view. What part of the river are you on? Maybe Rowan and I walk past your place on the regular. And yes, the smoke has been particularly bad. Looks like we are getting a reprieve, now.


As a big fan of sunrise and sunset, this is one of my favourite pictures. Living near the mighty Fraser River adds to its charm for me. I experience a version of this view from our back deck. For instance, the haze & summer smoke conditions make for a red filter at both ends of the day.
