The piece is currently on display and offered for sale at ViewPoint Gallery.

From the artist’s statement: I was lucky to get this photograph the day after the last major snow storm of the season. Off work for the day I decided to venture over to the Toronto Islands. It was so quiet there it felt like I was the only person on the island. Walking along the southern boardwalk I came across the frozen life saver which was lit so well from the sun above. I set up my tripod and shot a long exposure to get some movement in the clouds. It was a venture worthwhile. A perfect example of getting out when the moment is right.
