Favorite Photo From May Allagash River Canoe Trip

This is my favorite photo from our May canoe trip on the Allagash.  I got up at 3:57 am in order to wake someone on the trip at 4, and the light was just coming over the ridge to the northeast of the pond.  It was cold, but I grabbed my camera and took a few photos from the shore, then shot this one on my way to the far side of the campsite.  I like the line of canoes in the foreground, the framing of the trees, and the colors of the light in the sky.  Just thought I’d share it.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
