Sunrise at Ghost Lake

A man sitting on a park bench is silhouetted by a fiery cloud during sunrise at Ghost Lake, east of Cochrane, Alberta, Canada.  Photographed on March 20, 2021.

After an incredible Northern Lights display in the early hours of March 20th, I drove west of Cochrane to watch the morning arrive. Ice still covers the lake though large cracks and variety in the surface color and texture indicate spring is loosening the frozen grip.

I arrived in darkness with a dim glow on on the eastern horizon. The glow brightened steadily and soon I was watching the fiery clouds catching the earliest light and waiting for the sun to jump into the sky.

The long night fled as the sun rose and I used the time to think about the cycles of the seasons, life and family. Good thoughts, I believe, for the Spring Equinox.

  1. Beautiful images, the one of you? on the bench took me back to last summer on the beach watching the Perseids meteor showers with friends.
