Thanks for the nice comments and votes! Here, a sea kayak is held to a boat by national park rangers just before a photo shoot in front of one of Aialik Glacier in Aialik Bay in Kenai Fjords National Park. It was either raining and/or foggy the whole time I was there. Quite a challenge to keep the glass dry.

No selective desaturation here. It was incredibly foggy. Was like that for the four days I was there. This was taken in Aialik Bay which gets about three times more precipitation than Seward, AK. Thanks for your vote Penny.

Moving from 8 to 9. It is my highest score. Not sure if others will place it 1st though.

very very cool shot. i love the way the rope leads the viewers eye right into the seat of the kayak-- makes me way to jump in and start paddling. the colors are very vibrant, yet not overly saturated. well done!
