    Hi Ben, happy to hear that you liked this picture. As you noticed it was the beautiful reflection that motivated me to stop paddling and take this shot. Best wishes.

    This is really cool Mike! And you shot this from a kayak? That's really amazing.

    Thanks Jim!!! If you ever want to take a nice kayak trip I highly recommend the Colorado River from the Glen Canyon Dam to Lee's Ferry. Best wishes.

    This one brings back a lot of memories too, Mike. I have been down the Colorado four times and this is a wonderful image.

    You got the kayaker in the perfect position, in sunlight on a dark background.

    I completely agree. That highlighted kayak really adds a special element to this image.
