This was shot in Colorado and the boat is about 9' long (2.7 meters), so not a lot of extra room. So I'm in the bow of the boat trying hard to get as far back as I can. It is a gray colorless day but I'm thinking, "well I'm here, why not shoot", so I did. Only when I got back and into the office and really start working the image did I realize what could be done.

I don't impress myself much these days with photography, but I did on this shot.
