Summer in Ontario, Canada means cottage season for many people.  Those long evenings by the river or the lake enjoying Canadian nature at its finest.  The hardship of winter is a distant memory and we get to complain about the heat instead of the cold.  I shot this image shortly after 9:00 in the evening.  The sun has already dipped below the horizon, but the warm glow lingers.  I silhouetted a picnic table out on a dock.  I kicked the rule of thirds out the door and centered the subject.  The reflected light off the deck boards provided a nice lead in to the picnic table, which silhouetted here takes on almost the appearance of a shrine - which may be appropriate as outdoor pursuits IS the religion for many Canadians.  My work is cut out for me!

Technical Information:  Canon EOS M3 + Rokinon 12mm f/2 NCS,  Processed in Adobe Lightroom CC, Photoshop CC, and Alien Skin Exposure X  (use code "dustinabbott" to get 10% off)
