A common loon swims in front of a low, rocky island on a calm, smoky morning on Upper Kananaskis Lake. Haze from the wildfires to the west was thick in the mountains and often hid the mountains that ring the lake.

That is very hazy, but a beautiful photo with the layers of tints.

I usually don’t mention such things, but it appears to me that WordPress has changed their ad policy somehow. When I came to you page just now, there not only were a line of ads directly below your photo, there was a video ad as large as your photo playing beneath them. It was completely distracting, and made your image seem the least important part of the page. If you have an option to at least decline video ads, it might be helpful.
As for the photo itself, I especially like the way the diagonal slide of the fog and the lines of ripples in the lake seem to echo the ‘point’ of the rocks and the loon’s bill. Everything seems to be going in the same direction.

Thank you! I’ve adjusted the advertising settings so there shouldn’t be the second ad. The platform changes how ads are run sometimes so I have to check this again on a few different devices. I really appreciate your comment otherwise I might not have caught this for a while! Cheers!
