Taken in Charlevoix at around 06:30 in the morning. My first photographic experience with the tide. I never could have imagined it could rise so fast. While I was setting up to take that shot, I had left my Lowepro Photo Trekker bag in place where at least I thought it was safe. That's until I realized, right after taken my shot that the water had already reached it, and there it was standing in about two inches of water. Luckily all my gear was nice and dry. Wish I could say the same about my shoes.
