Short explanation of the story and how it developed:

Finding an interesting perspective with activity, youth and architecture for summer fun led to this location choice. The balance of colour was an important part of the shoot and the final layout, with the sky and the kayak both drawing your eye into the frame and finally to the cottage.

Resources of the newsroom (money and time) available to complete the story:

Keeping to a $150 budget for this cover was difficult and meant that there was not much time to waste - but our photograpgher Steve Smith is exceptional at looking for the best approach quickly and effectively. The family dressed in their summer gear in the photograph was also very appreciate of Steve's use of time considering that the images we shot in April and there was still ice in the air blowing in off the Northmberland Strait.
