Congrats Harlan and Hiker Neil! Both photos are awesome. Harlan, the sunset is gorgeous and the moon reflected on the water makes the image very special. Neil, I love how your photo creates a sense of awe, with the person seeming so very small compared to the size of the waves. Very evocative... It made me really "feel" the place.

Thanks to everyone who voted for my photo. That is my dog Tripper Dawg and if I could find the original you would see that most of the lake still had ice on it! He loves the water.

I think Tripper must have won hearts because there were some outstanding photographic achievements submitted. Thanks to everyone for sharing your water pics with us!

Well done, all three of you! :thumbup:

Mine is a shot of a waterfall coming over the top of Mazinaw Rock at Bon Echo PP. It must have been because of the VERY wet Spring this year, or something, because it has never been there before when I have visited there, ever.


This is before I paddled right under it:

Actually, the photo was taken by my wife (she must have taken 25) and that's me in the picture. I'll make sure she gets the prize money.

I tweaked the levels and sharpness a bit to bring out the water a little more.

We were in Newfoundland on our way to Port aux Basques from where we were taking the ferry the next day back to Sydney. We saw a little road on the map and explored it. I believe it was near the town of Cape Ray.

Mine was the kayak on the Bass Lake side of the portage out to Georgian Bay on the French River. I love the combination of colours in the kayak, the throw bag and the pool noodle that my buddy used to proect it from the rocks.

My photo was April's snow melt slowly making it's journey to the Magnetawan River. The fungus on the stick was a brilliant coral colour. I just liked my boots that day and the way the puddle reflected the bare tree tops and sky.

I took that shot while sitting near the water's edge of our campsite on Little Doe Lake,APP, last summer. I was mesmerized by the ebbing of the waves on the rock in front of me.

Mine was taken just a few Km from Red Lake on the creek heading out of Faulkenham Lake. It was a perfectly calm night...taken around 8:30 PM....great little lake behind those trees!

THIS shot of mine was taken on the Bowron Lake Circuit in Sept 2007.

I have now posted Harlan's beautiful winning sunset photo on CCR's Home Page (www.myccr.com). Apologies that it took so long - I've been away 2 weeks paddling on Lake Superior & am just catching up with things.)

My own photo was taken just off the shores of Prince Edward County in Lake Ontario near some bluffs in very early April. Ice was melting & at that time of the year the water is so clear that you can see about 30' down. I liked the fact that there was frozen ice, trickling of a small waterfall & the clear, clear water all together.
