After I posted a cloudy day picture of Quail Lake a few days ago (HERE), Pat and I decided to try again on Sunday to see if I could get a shot that showed off the mountains in the background. Alas, although it was perfectly gorgeous out, we got there a little too late in the afternoon. (My fault!) The sun was in the wrong position, rendering a blown out sky. But I was able to get this nice image, so all was not lost! I know you can't can't see it very well here, but when I blew up the photo very large on my monitor, I could clearly see the blissed out expression on the kayaker's face. He looked like he was having the best day! Good for him!
I have to laugh at this picture a little. It looks like a promo shot for the Colorado Division of Tourism. All it needs is the caption, "Come to Colorful Colorado!"
