While photographing in the Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland, I came across this small pond. This pond is generally kept clear of vegetation by the large population of moose which live in the area, several of which I encountered after taking this photograph—a bit too close for comfort!

These plants were growing up through the clear, still waters of this wild pond and were backlit with the late afternoon sun. They seemed me to be almost rejoicing as they stretched upward, reaching toward the light.

This image is a powerful reminder to me of the exuberance and joy inherent within all of life.
