We were up early the Saturday we were on Beausoleil Island, making photographs and enjoying the beautiful landscape we were lucky enough to be submerged in for an entire week. The weather was finally calm and the sky was filled with big puffy clouds, which always makes the wee hours of the morning a lot more bearable.
It ended up being quite a busy day with photography at both dawn and dusk plus our first Meet and Greet at the park’s Visitor Centre.
