January photo contest: Pick of the day

Categories: Community

Natalie Bryant sent in today's photo from the First Nations community of Lax-Kw'alaams near Port Simpson, B.C.

The picture, titled "Smoke on the water," shows "a view of the beautiful ocean and surrounding areas outside of Lax-Kw'alaams on a very cold January day."

Natalie sent this photo on behalf of her father. "His New Year's resolution is to quit smoking," she explains.

A vista as clean and calm as the one in this picture should serve as a fine inspiration towards a healthier, smoke-free lifestyle.

Bruce Reeve from the Multimedia Team has some advice on how to make a shot like this even more impressive. "Mist over water is appealing," he says, "but this image could be improved by moving in much closer to something interesting in the foreground (such as an unusual ice formation) and perhaps selecting a more striking background."

Thanks for the submission!

We'll be posting your best shots with the theme of "resolutions" each day in January. At the end of the month, we'll select five finalists and ask you to vote for your favourite.
