Harbour Dawn

Kayaking in early morning ice, Inner Harbour, Toronto IslandsAfter going through Hanlan’s and the airport for almost six weeks in 2004 the ice was pretty thick, and the City contracted out one of the largest tugs in the harbour to break up the ice as much as possible.

After six weeks of relative silence the crunchy tinkling sound woke me up, in time to kick the ice off of the kayak and play olive to the world’s biggest martini.  Here the  Ongiara passes by at close quarters (the wideangle lens makes it look further away than it is), sailing into a February sunrise.
