Being at the right place at the right time — that's how Andre Labelle of Windsor, Ontario, captured this serene scene on Windy Lake, located just west of Dowling, Ontario, Canada.

“Beginners luck, I guess,” said Labelle, who submitted his photo on a whim, prompted by positive comments from his posting on Google Earth.

“This was the first time I submitted a picture for anything,” said Labelle, who snapped the winning shot on July 15 with an 8-year-old Sony Cybershot 3.2 megapixel camera.

Labelle was on vacation and visiting friends who recently purchased a house with a backyard view of Windy Lake.

“I surprised my son Kaden on his 14th birthday by waking him up at six in the morning to go fishing. I went back inside to get my camera because it was so nice out.”

Kaden caught his first fish, a 2 1/2-pound largemouth bass.

It was a day of memorable firsts for both father and son.
