Early riser on the water

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Maciek Szymanowicz

I had woken around sunrise to admire the breathtaking views of the Strait of Georgia and British Columbia's Coast Mountains. I expected at such an early hour solitude would be assured, but to my surprise I spotted this lone kayaker halfway across the strait, calmly enjoying the morning stillness in the midst of this majestic landscape.

Location: Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada
